We present an exceptional Fender pre-CBS Stratocaster. This guitar is an all original and 100% complete 1957 Fender Stratocaster in Sunburst finish. Made in Fullerton, California.
This is a mid 1957 version and overall it’s in excellent condition with no breaks or any repairs. Lightweight alder body with only 3.36 kilograms. So much response, resonance and sustain in this guitar. Few spots of play wear around the neck and belt buckle wear on the back that gives this Stratocaster a cool mojo look. Beautiful flamed V-profile neck and the original frets and nut have plenty of life left. The headstock has a cigaret burn mark on the corner. Otherwise the headstock is clean and beautiful flamed.
The three original single-coil Black Bottom pickups are well balanced with a great output. The 6 x orig. Kluson single-line tuners turns perfectly and the original single layer pickguard has no breaks. The Fender Stratocaster bridge with 6x “Pat.nr.stamped” steel-saddles is also in perfect working order. Just a stunning and rare pre-CBS Stratocaster that comes complete with its original tremolo arm and bridge cover.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Even comes complete with its original tweed hardshell case with red plush lining. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
