Description

The guitar against which all other electrics are measured, the Fender Stratocaster reigns king. This Strat came into the world in 1957 looking pretty much exactly as it looks now, with the addition of a few decades' play wear--we're talking the real, all-original deal, three way switch and all. It plays, and plays, and plays, with Fender's hallmark neck profile, and the pickups are still blazing right along in pristine glory! When's the next time you're going to see a 50's Strat in such amazing shape?

I've only seen a few Strats like this one, all original and in wonderful shape, but this one takes the cake for tone. The vintage pickups have a special warmth to them that you just can't find in a new guitar, and the setup is butter-smooth.
 
The holy grail of electric guitars. I've only played a few of these in my lifetime and this one is probably the best sounding and the best feeling of all. It's also in pretty great shape considering its age and the original case even comes with it. I could get lost in this guitar. It really plays itself with the years and years of use that have made it feel warm and comfortable, unlike any new guitar I've played. What a find.
