Vintage Guitar Scene: 1958 Fender Stratocaster

1958 Fender Stratocaster (Serial Number 024609)

This is the guitar I like to play at home, it has a great unplugged sound and I have written many songs on it. I got this guitar around the time of The Atlantics “Flight of the Surf Guitar” album but it didn’t get used until after those sessions.

I’m not a big fan of maple fingerboards but there is something about the 50s Fender maple boards that works. All in all a fun guitar to play.
