A remarkably clean example of a Pre-CBS Fender! Feast your eyes on one of the Real Ones-- an all original 1958 Stratocaster. It arrived with not only its original tweed case, but also the original tremolo arm and ashtray bridge cover as well-- a perfect set. The 3-tone burst still shows true with plenty of red left and at only 7lbs-5oz she rings like a bell unplugged. The original frets show the wear you'd expect of a 60+ year old guitar, and while it could "benefit" from a modern refret, it's certainly playable as-is. The original pickups are exceptionally well matched output-wise and while it still has its original 3-way switch, you can finesse the "notch" positions and get truly stunning sounds from every angle. The finish shows honest playwear with buckle rash on the back and some chipping along the body edges. Neck is pencil marked "3-58", neck pickup cavity has the name "Carrie" in pencil, and the middle pickup cavity has "3-58" penciled in as well. This is a true collector's piece, about as fine an example you'll find!
