There are many reasons that the 1957 model is considered the most iconic Stratocaster and they can be found here. This guitar feels like the perfect guitar, from mid 1957. The neck is a full feeling medium size V shape. The body is a slim two tone sunburst alder body. The guitar is all original and very clean with some minor playing wear. The original instruction booklet and strap are included along with the original tweed case that is still very attractive.
