1955 FenderStratocaster – Sunburst

It doesn’t get much better than this 1955 Fender Stratocaster in its original Sunburst finish for us guitar geeks! We purchased this Stratocaster from the son of the original owner, Walter King, who was a Long Island Blues player and decided to put his name right on his guitar! It’s clear that Walter took amazing care of his Stratocaster because it is as if it just stepped out of a time machine. The spectacular wood grain in the ash body shows through the finish nicely and there is virtually no wear on the maple neck or the original bakelite parts.
