1986 FENDER STRATOCASTER 57 RI-1

My super rare early (March) 1986 Fender Stratocaster ’57 ri

1986 FENDER STRATOCASTER 57 RI CORONA-FULLERTON

. All Fullerton parts, curves, Fullerton ’57 ri manual and case candy, Duck foot tweed case. Original 3 way switch still installed, optional 5 way switch included, strap, original owners warranty card and hang tag, etc etc This guitar was made in the early days of the new Corona California USA plant by a handful of employees making just a few guitars a day with the leftover stock from the old Fullerton plant. So the quality of the workmanship is amazing. The tone and feel is absolutely breathtaking, chimey and bell like tones, deep curves just like in the 50s. This guitar is in absolutely incredible condition, I want to say MINT….. it seems to have been played only a handful of times and has no visible checking. A very slight wear through at the first fret. This is early custom shop work at its best. THESE GUITARS ARE NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!! They are always sold out at the Fenderreissueshop.com. A rare find and a great investment, these early Corona ri’s along with the already established Fullerton ri’s are some of the best Fender guitars you can find. Many of the builders of these early models went on to become Fender Master builders at the Fender Custom Shop.
