Alder body 1956 and 1957 Stratocasters seem like the best ones. The mid 1956 to mid 1957 models have the nice medium size V neck and the body carve is also very comfortable. This guitar has all the original finish and every single original part including the original arm with the bakelite tip. It is very complete. One pickup is rewound. The condition is nice with some wear but no damage and the fingerboard is not so worn for this kind.
