|Comments||Building on the wild success of the Telecaster, Leo Fender introduced the more sophisticated Stratocaster in 1954. It’s been in constant production since then, with a variety of changes and reissues.
This 1986 Fender 1957 Reissue Stratocaster is an exceptionally clean example of the 1980’s ‘V’. series. It’s a reproduction of the 1957 model line, with deeper contours, a distinctive two-tone sunburst and a somewhat lighter body; ’57s were used by many influential guitarists including Buddy Holly, Eric Clapton and Eric Johnson. In fact the Eric Johnson strat is based on his 1957 model! It was built in Fender’s then-new production facility in Corona, California.
