Fender Stratocaster American Vintage – AMERICAN VINTAGE 57 STRATOCASTER Electric Guitar Review :: Fender Electric Guitar Reviews

the most imitated electric guitar ever

musical instruments image

One of the most popular instruments in history, the Fender Stratocaster guitar is certainly the most imitated electric guitar ever. 1957—the peak of the maple-neck Strat era—was a benchmark year for the instrument, which had evolved from early incarnations into an archetype. Original details on this American Vintage ’57 Fender Strat include unique ’57/’62 pickups, three-way switching (five-way switch kit included), beveled pickup magnets, ashtray bridge cover, single-ply pickguard, the original synchronized tremolo (with ashtray included), nickel silver frets, and other vintage appointments. Maple fretboard. Includes tweed hardshell case.
