1957 FenderStratocaster – Blue Metallic


We’re certainly lucky and thankful for this unbelievable, pre-color chart 1957 Fender Stratocaster in its original Blue Metallic Finish! This has got to be one of our favorite Stratocasters in the entire store, boasting one of the most comfortable V neck profiles we’ve had pass through our hands. This very instrument was featured in the legendary landmark book, “Galaxy of Strats” and it doesn’t take long to see why!  This guitar was definitely used and maintained throughout its life, with wear and checking throughout the body and neck, and some of the coolest fretboard wear we’ve seen. Despite this use, the original frets were well cared for and still have life left in them!
