This Fender 1957 Stratocaster Relic in Aged HLE Gold is a beauty with a great neck.  

Part of a collection of guitars that received little play before making their way to us.  This is a great way to save some dough if you're considering buying a new one, because you could easily consider this a new guitar.

The guitar set up nicely with a set of 10-46 strings and feels great with a nice weight - just a hair over 7.5 pounds.

The guitar is all original and includes the original paperwork in the original case.
