This is the real deal! A very early 1958 Strat with all original finish, parts and case. This guitar comes from the owner who has had the guitar for over 30 years!! The beautifully aged two-tone sunburst body has a real nice thin contour body cut that comes close to the end of the top horn of the guitar. The pickguard was never taken off this guitar until we got it on our bench when we found that the body is maker ‘1-58’ and the masking tape in the body cavity is marked ‘2/12/58’. All the pickups and electronics are original and none of the solder has ever been touched. The pickup wires still have the original harnessing masking tape! The very comfortable soft ‘V’ neck is marked ‘1-58’ on the heel. The tuning pegs are all original and are not at all rusted. The single-ply white pickguard is 100% perfect with no screw cracks.
