Overview

To celebrate the '57 Stratocaster turning the big 5-O, Fender is rolling out the iconic electric guitar in a limited edition with a popular guise: white blonde with gold hardware. These Strats also include a special commemorative neckplate and will only be produced in 2007. The neckplate features the silhouette of a Stratocaster with the 50-year anniversary dates: 1957 & 2007. Although the Strat officially debuted in 1954 with an ash body, and U-shaped neck, 1957 was the year that the specs of the Stratocaster guitar as we know it today all came together including alder body and V-shaped neck.

The Limited Edition Stratocaster is the perfect guitar for players who want the classic look and vibe, but with high performance modern features as well. These features include vintage-style frets, vintage styling, and three American Vintage Strat single-coil pickups. The Anniversary American Vintage Strat is a player's guitar, and sports the signature toneful Fender nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

But it Now!

By Lucky Guy

from Loveland, Ohio

Let me start by saying I have own serveral stratocasters and fenders over the years including a few Gibson Les Pauls's. I currently have an american deluxe V neck and a Les Paul Classic. This strat.is the best playing and sounding guitar I have ever played. This axe is a piece of art. For any one interested in owning strat.history should buy this guitar. Not only is it the best sounding stratocaster I have played but the best looking. I traded an Eric Clapton strat. for this gem. I am not sorry as I think the neck is better and it looks 100% cooler. If you love the V neck and the strat. you should pick up this guitar before it is discontinued and you pay twice as much for this collectors item. This guitar is so cool you will not want to play it, however it would be a shame because this thing is a players dream.

White Beauty

By joeyRIOT!

from San Jose, CA

i must admit that as a guitarist with somewhat limited income (being 16 will do that to you), i saved up for this guitar and was blown away at is beauty when it came in the mail. the shine, the gold hardware, and that was BEFORE i plugged it in. the sound chimed in clean and blew my head clean off in mega distortion. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS GUITAR

Very disappointed

By Kel B.

from Seattle

I purchased this, took it home , played on it and did a side by side comparison with my 60th Anniversary Mexi strat, the only area the 57 outshined my mexi was in the pickups. Nothing else. Otherwise my Mexi took the prize. I'm 46 and been playing for most of those years, so I have played just about everything out there. Sorry, this one is no prize. I took mine back.
