To celebrate the ’57 Stratocaster turning the big 5-O, Fender is rolling out the iconic electric guitar in a limited edition with a popular guise: white blonde with gold hardware.
These Strats also include a special commemorative neckplate and will only be produced in 2007. The neckplate features the silhouette of a Stratocaster with the 50-year anniversary dates: 1957 & 2007. Although the Strat officially debuted in 1954 with an ash body, and U-shaped neck, 1957 was the year that the specs of the Stratocaster guitar as we know it today all came together including alder body and V-shaped neck.
The Limited Edition Stratocaster is the perfect guitar for players who want the classic look and vibe, but with high performance modern features as well. These features include vintage-style frets, vintage styling, and three American Vintage Strat single-coil pickups. The Anniversary American Vintage Strat is a player’s guitar, and sports the signature toneful Fender nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
If any of you are guitar players, I would love to hear from you as to what you are playing and what you are looking for as your next guitar to add to your collection.
