Behold the Fender Special Run '57 Strat in Candy Apple Red.
One of the most popular instruments in history, the Fender® Stratocaster® guitar is the most imitated electric guitar ever. 1957 was a landmark year for the instrument - it had evolved from its early incarnations into an archetype - and it was the high point of the maple-neck era. Features include an alder body (ash on White Blonde model), ’57/’62 pickups, three-way switching (five-way switch kit included), beveled pickup magnets, ashtray bridge cover and single-ply pickguard. Includes case.
