1957 Fender Stratocaster, NOT re-issue. Fiesta Red Lacquer finish by Fiesta Finishes™. Neck is also refinished, although frets appear to be original.
Original parts include, body and neck, no routes, cracks or other issues. Original pickups with original pickup covers. Original knobs, jack, jack plate, neck plate, bridge, saddles, trem block, whammy bar, Kluson Single Line tuners.
Reproduction parts include, pots, 5-way switch, switch tip and probably the guard. This guitar came to us with an older gold ano guard and we elected to leave it alone. It may be original, but in all likelihood, it is an older reproduction that is naturally worn. Many, but not all screws on the guitar are original.
The guitar sounds and plays wonderfully, as a '57 Strat with original pickups should. Great Bell Tone these '57's are known for.
The neck is a full V-shape, typical of the period. It measures .833" at 1st fret and .974" at 12th fret. The body date is 5/57, the neck date is 6-57. The guitar weighs 7 lb. 3 oz. Pickups measure, from Neck to Bridge, 5.9K Ohms, 5.5K Ohms, 5.8K Ohms. Serial number on original plate is 13XXX.
The guitar ships in a new C&G red plush lined Tweed case.
Great opportunity to buy a '57 Strat in a custom color with gold guard, something a little different and cool.
