Fender / Stratocaster / 1957 / 2-tone Sunburst ...only 3,17Kg! / Guitar

Early 1957 Fender Stratocaster in 2-tone Sunburst in rare Hardtail version and in excellent condition. Besides a small professionally filled additional screwhole in the pickguard/body it's all original and has untouched solderjoints! It's got a big chunky V neck that feels absolutely great and it simply sounds amazing! It's got that typical "Hardtail twang" and great resonance. No wonder it has a lightweight alder body with strong finish left. The guitar has some minor playwear mostly on the backside of the body and on the fretboard, as well as the usual weatherchecking. The neck date is the only thing that makes it a '57 since it's pencil-marked "1/57", the body is dated "12/56" in the middle pickup cavity. The 3x Stackpole pots are stamped 304.6.33 (33th week of 1956). The three original single-coil pickups are well balanced with outputs of (B/M/N) 5,80K / 5,89K and 5,55K. All original including the original CRL 3-way switch. Incl. original Fender tweed case with red plush lining.
