This guitar only shows two signs of wear, both noticeable. Along the top side of the guitar, there is one large indent from the guitar falling against a cymbal. There is one other small section where the nitro lacquer has been chipped or rubbed off, it's hard to tell by what. These are almost unnoticeable front-on, and can only really be seen while playing it from the player's perspective. These marks are purely cosmetic, and don't affect the playability/functionality at all. Besides these, the guitar is in absolutely mint condition, and functions/feels as though factory fresh.
When we released the Stratocaster in 1954, we didn’t set out to create a classic—but we did. The Stratocaster’s sleek style, articulate sound and plethora of innovations redefined electric guitar and opened up a brave new world of musical possibilities. The American Original ‘50s Stratocaster maintains Fender’s legendary original-era style and ground-breaking tone, while adding modern feel and pickup switching.
