The Vintage Hot Rod '57 Stratocasters are hot-rodded versions of the American Vintage Stratocasters. They were made from 2007-2013, and feature a slimmer V neck with a modern 9.5" fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets, Samarium Cobalt Noiseless™ neck and middle pickups, hot DiMarzio® ToneZone® bridge pickup, vintage styling and thin-skin nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

This Stratocaster was made in February 2007 and is in Very Good condition. The noiseless pickups sound nice and “Stratty” though perhaps a bit less bright than some Strat pickups (not necessarily a bad thing). The bridge humbucker sounds great and gives a slight boost when you choose that position, but still matches well with the overall sound. This guitar weighs 7.8 pounds, and resonates nicely unplugged. The neck is a somewhat slim soft V shape. The “thin-skin” nitrocellulose lacquer shows minor surface scratches as does the pickguard, and the body has two small dings, one is through the finish (see picture). There is some minor finish checking, but it is difficult to see. Minimal fret wear, the medium jumbos feel great. The overall appearance is perhaps like a Fender Custom Shop “Closet Classic”. It really is in great shape for a 14 year old nitro guitar. Comes with original Tweed Case and strap, and I believe all of the case candy, but no “ash tray”. Fresh setup and 0.10-0.46 strings.

These 57 Hot Rod Strats are rare and I think $1450 is a fair price for this one. The Reverb sales range from about a grand up to about $1600 and more. There are only three reviews on Reverb, but all are five stars.
