1954 FenderStratocaster – Sunburst

This is an especially vibey first-year Fender Stratocaster in Sunburst! This guitar was certainly played to its fullest, obvious from the play wear on the body and neck showing off how much the prior owner loved this guitar. And we certainly can’t blame them. Aside from its psychotic tone, this guitar is stunning. I mean, just look at that flame! The neck features some birdseye-flamed maple all across the neck and headstock. Amazingly, the bass side of the body is also flamed. This guitar is all original, except for the knobs which have been swapped for reproduction examples. Looking at the side of this guitar’s case, you will find painted on it the band name “The Westerners” and some musical notes. Perhaps the original owner’s band name? It’s a cool touch!
