This stunning 1954 Fender Stratocaster features a hand-carved, two-piece Ash body, a hallmark of early Fender craftsmanship. Classic Bakelite plastic parts, a comfortable Maple neck with the distinctive Skunk Walnut stripe, and a hand-smoothed headstock. Only available in Australia's premier vintage guitar shops, a first year Stratocaster is amongst the rarest of collectible musical instruments.

Enhanced for Playability

For optimal performance, the guitar was outfitted with a newer tremolo bar, pots, and knobs, likely sourced from a 1956 Fender Stratocaster when the plastics were upgraded. These tasteful upgrades ensure smooth playing and reliable functionality, without compromising the instrument's vintage character.

A Storied Past

Adding to its allure, this guitar was owned by an INXS guitarist for over 32 years of its life. Whether gracing the stage or fueling creative sessions, this Stratocaster has undoubtedly witnessed a rich musical history. Now, it awaits a new chapter in its journey.

A Rare Find

This exceptional instrument offers a unique blend of vintage heritage and modern playability. It's a perfect choice for collectors seeking a piece with a storied past and a stage-ready presence. Don't miss this opportunity to own a legend!
