VINTAGE Original Fender 1957 Stratocaster
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-12)
Price : US $24,499
For sale is my 1957 Fender Stratocaster.
This is one of the cleanest and most complete vintage strats I've seen offered on Ebay recently.
100% original, nice lightweight (7.5 lbs) example of which I am the third owner.
The neck and body dates are matched at 5/57.
The sunburst finish, with the exception of some back wear, is very clean for an instrument of this age.
The frets are original and show little wear.
Everything under the gaurd remains perfect and untouched including all solder joints.
The 1st thing I noticed about this guitar when I bought it was how great the neck played even with vintage frets. There is some lacquer wear on the face of the fret board but the back is very clean with a nice soft V.
Headstock, decal, string tree, and tuners, are near mint. All three pickups are perfectly balanced and the tone is loud, sweet, and bell like; even acoustically. The result of perfectly aged alder wood body, medium V maple neck, and Leo's miracle 3 single coil pickups.
Luckily the original owner was careful enough to hold on to the bridge cover, tremolo arm, guitar strap, cable, and Fender polishing cloth. These original accessories are photograghed and come with the guitar, tucked in the glove compartment of the original tweed case.
All the latches on the case work perfectly and the Fender brass name plate is still there. Most collectors have never even seen this plate
This guitar is sold (sold on 2008-08-12)
