1957 FenderStratocaster – Sunburst

Here’s a fantastic chance to pick up this beautifully worn-in 1957 Fender Stratocaster in Sunburst! This guitar was clearly played and cared for, as it has a nice patina on the finish, hardware, and even the plastic components. This guitar was completed in early 1957, and still sports an excellent, full profile that fills the palm nicely. The three single-coil pickups are well-balanced, and this guitar is easily capable of crisp, articulate tones whether they’re clean or distorted!
