Seymour Duncan Restores John Oates Original Fender Stratocaster

Seymour Duncan recently took on a project to restore John Oates (Hall & Oates) original Fender Stratocaster to all its ’80s glory. After taking detailed measurements, pictures, and studying old photos of the guitar, Seymour took to bringing the tone, look and feel back to where it was when John Oates was jamming out “Maneater”, “Private Eyes” or “You Make My Dreams Come True.” Check out the video below to see the whole process, including John Oates’ reaction to playing the restored guitar.
