We present an exceptional Fender pre-CBS Stratocaster. This guitar is an all original and 100% 1957 Fender Stratocaster Hardtail in Sunburst finish.
This is an early 1957 Hardtail version and overall it’s in excellent+ condition with no breaks or any repairs. Lightweight 1-piece ash body with only 3.08 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 Strat a cool mojo look. V profile neck and the original frets have plenty of life left. 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 Hardtail bridge with 6x “Pat.nr.stamped” steel-saddles is also in perfect working order. Just a stunning and rare pre-CBS Stratocaster.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring are 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.
