Members Wulver Posted January 17, 2010 Members Share Posted January 17, 2010 ....I played an original '57 Strat. I feel as though I've touched God. Had the guy it belonged to tell me about it, he apparently even traded for it back in the 80s, his Gibson SG Les Paul for the Strat. The body is '57, the neck was also '57 but not original to the body, the original neck being apparently badly warped and had to be replaced. Cool that he tracked down another '57 neck for it though. Some sort of blue finish, had sustained some heavy wear, worn back down to the primer in many places and down all the way to the sunburst underneath in spots. Original single-layer pickguard, three-way switch, pickups wound over 50 years ago..... I played better tonight than I usually do, I'll say that much. It honestly didn't FEEL or sound too different from any other Strat, but it was a VERY good Strat, and it played like a good Strat. Which was enough for me. Had a very enjoyable time with it. ....that's all, I guess. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
