Early 1957 Stratocaster, another one of the best ones with the full feeling V neck and very contoured body. I think these late 1956 and early 1957 Stratocasters have the most perfect neck and body shapes of any. This guitar is in excellent all original condition. The knobs are bakelite, the pickup covers are not. I think this guitar is from the first two or three months of 1957 but have not taken the neck off. I just sold a January 1957 guitar that was the same dimensions but had bakelite covers. Sorry for the long description.
