We present an all original 1957 Fender Stratocaster in its original 2-Tone Sunburst finish.
This 1957 pre-CBS Fender Stratocaster has been well-loved by its original owner, since he bought it back in the 50’s (picture documentation is included). This ONE OWNER piece, has the most gorgeous look with beautiful playwear. Overall it has weather checking and nicks and dings and the original “Pat.nr.stamped” steel-saddles and hardware has become worn and aged. The saddles screws is cleaned so they can run perfectly. The original frets and nut has still life left, but if played regularly we recommend new frets. But in the end, we will let the new owner make that decision.
The Black Bottom Pickups are very strong and balanced. They are warm and clear with a lively tone, with a perfect balance between the set. This guitar is so amazing and a super rare piece of history as well as a top collector piece and a top notch player. It sounds incredibly good with a lot of dry-woody tone.
2-piece alder-body in beautiful 2-tone sunburst finish. 1957 are some of the most popular and desirable Strats from the 50s, because of their great “V”-shape neck. This V-shape neck is absolutely beautiful worn and dirty but in the same time so fantastic that you can’t stop playing. The original CRL 3-way switch work perfectly has never been out. All pickups and the electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
It even comes complete with the original hardshell tweed case, whammy bar, and pictures of the original owner.
