1954 Fender Stratocaster


In 1954, Fender created the ultimate combination of aesthetics and functionality in electric guitar design with the Stratocaster. The contoured, modernistic body shape is a familiar sight on rock and roll stages around the world, and Fender's current product line is dominated by countless variations on the Stratocaster.

This guitar (inv. #EF6998) is the original version, with a neck date of 6-54 and a body date of 6-15-54. In VG condition, with a modern Fender hard case,it is offered at $35,000.
