Vintage Custom '57 Strat®
2019 Vintage Custom 1957 Strat® NOS, Maple Fingerboard, Aged White Blonde
Model Number: 9235000859
One of the earliest versions of Fender’s custom work was the guitar that became known as the “Mary Kaye”. Combining a White Blonde finish with gold hardware, this guitar was featured in several ads and eventually became one of the most-desired Stratocaster models. The Vintage Custom ’57 Strat is your chance to enjoy this elegant-looking guitar that looks, sounds and feels like it’s straight from the ‘50s. The one-piece ash body sports an immaculate NOS flash coat lacquer finish that lets the wood breathe with more sustain, while wearing in a distinctly personal way. The tinted riftsawn maple sports a “ ’57 V” profile, while the maple fingerboard’s vintage-style 7.25”-9.5” compound radius is ideal for playing chords or single-note lines. A trio of Hand-Wound ’57 Strat single-coil pickups, connected with vintage-style wiring, offers authentic original-era tone that lit the music world on fire.
Other features include 21 medium-vintage frets, 5-way switch, 1-ply Parchment pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
