Fender American Vintage Commemorative 1957 Stratocaster at a Glance:
  • A 50-year milestone
  • Vintage vibe
  • Limited run

A 50-year milestone
Though the Fender Stratocaster made its official debut in 1954 (with an ash body and "U" neck profile), the instrument didn't truly take its "modern form" until 1957, when it first featured the alder body and V-shape neck profile we've all come to know and love. The American Vintage Commemorative 1957 Stratocaster celebrates the 50th birthday of the first incarnation of the current Strat.

Vintage vibe
A special neckplate lets you know this is a special instrument. It's engraved to commemorated the 50th anniversary of the modern Stratocaster, and it's joined by a vintage-style "ash tray" bridge cover, American Vintage Strat single-coil pickups, and classy gold hardware to boot.

A limited run
This special guitar will be limited to production in 2007 only, so don't hesitate to contact your Sweetwater Sales Engineer to get a truly historic and collectable Strat! Think about it: how many cars manufactured in 1957 could still define the auto industry today? None! The American Vintage Commemorative 1957 Stratocaster is proof positive that Leo Fender got it right...and you can play the evidence!
