One of the most popular instruments in history, Fender's Stratocaster guitar is certainly the most imitated electric guitar ever. 1957-the peak of the maple-neck Strat era-was a benchmark year for the instrument, which had evolved from early incarnations into an archetype. Original details on this American Vintage 57 Stratocaster include unique 57/62 pickups, three-way switching (five-way switch kit included), beveled pickup magnets, ashtray bridge cover and single-ply pickguard.
