I hope you have sunglasses, because this baby is bright! 

Not only is it bright when you look at it,  it's also bright when you listen to it.  A nod to surf culture which would ramp up in the coming years,  this Strat shows the wild side of the beginning of the Custom color era.  A far cry from the standard 2-tone Sunburst finish, this nitrocellulose Seafoam Green lacquer is eye catching and uniquely attractive.  With all of the appointments of the infamous 1957 model,  this reissue is sporting a set of Pure Vintage '57 pickups, an alder body, and a one-piece maple neck.  

Comes with OHSC

 

From Fender:

"The Fender® American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.

With its alluring curves, sparkling sounds and groundbreaking tremolo bridge, Fender's new 1954 Stratocaster® was a phenomenon, unlike anything the world had ever seen. By 1957, the Stratocaster had crystallized into a mid-century masterpiece.

Featuring a trio of Pure Vintage '57 Stratocaster pickups, sweeping body contours and a supremely comfortable "V"-shape neck with a 7.25" radius maple fingerboard, the American Vintage II 1957 Stratocaster reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original. Other appointments include a vintage-accurate synchronized tremolo with cold rolled steel block and bent steel saddles, single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuners and a single-ply pickguard.

Offered in three stunning nitrocellulose lacquer finishes - 2-Color Sunburst and Sea Foam Green over alder and Vintage Blonde over ash - the American Vintage II 1957 Stratocaster celebrates a true icon of Fender instrument design.

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders: designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends."
