Fender Strat “57 Hot Tex”
Fender Stratocaster '57 Hot Tex' [SOLD]
Fender Stratocaster Vintage Relic '57 Hot Tex.' Fender USA body with thin nitro gloss finish (vintage 2-tone sunburst) and Fender reissue neck (maple fretboard 7.25' radius, vintage size frets with NO fretwear, slight V profile, tinted nitro finish); Fender Custom Shop Texas Special pickups; Cloth wiring harness/5 way switch; Fender hardware; Fender Deluxe gig bag (OR upgrade for a Benjamin to a Fender tolex case). It has undergone a complete aging relicing: weather checking throughout the body and neck, dings, scratches, arm wear, belt buckle wear, fretboard wear, etc. All finish is thin nitro; all hardware and plastic aged relic'd. Looks and feels like a late 1950s Strat! Lightweight at just 7.0 pounds! Plays great and these Custom Shop Texas Special pickups are nice and HOT--great for rock and blues (and hum canceling in positions 2 and 4). Setup with D'Addario EXL120 strings (.009-.042).
