Fender '50s Strat Nitro Finish in 2-Colour Sunburst

Classic Series, Soft V Neck


Here's what Fender say about the 50s Strat: 

For guitarists who must have the instrument's original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series '50s Stratocaster Lacquer epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Strat® style and sparkling sound. With authentic vintage-style features including a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic 2-Tone Sunburst, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, "Ike for President," cars with fins, a wild new kind of music called rock 'n' roll and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.
