Fender Stratocaster USA Vintage Series 2007, 57 Re-issue, 50th Anniversary with Gold Hardware
Fender Stratocaster USA Vintage Series 2007, 57 Re-issue, 50th Anniversary with Gold Hardware These ’57 Re-issue strats are a joy to play. The 21-jumbo fret Maple neck is super smooth. The fingerboard is in great shape with a nitro-lacquer finish. The body is finished in White Blond with a translucent finish. This Fender Stratocaster USA Vintage Series is for players and collectors. Fender made a limited run of these guitars between 3/07 and 1/08. They all had a special gold-coloured neck plate with an embossed Stratocaster and 1957-2007. The gold theme extended to the hardware, including the ash tray bridge cover and the Fender Gotoh tuners. I have only seen one other model with this brushed metal scratchplate. All of the others had a single ply white scratch plate. You had a choice of upgrading the switch from a 3-position, to a 5-position switch. This one has the upgrade. The pickups have been upgraded to Mark Foley / Fatboy SVL 59’s. The body has a few marks on it. The front is good. The back has a few little nicks and some light compressions. The comfort contoured alder body is very comfortable and a bit lighter than other strats that I’ve had. This Fender Stratocaster USA Vintage Series is supplied with a variety of original tags and booklets. The gold coloured bridge cover and tremolo arm are included.
