This beautiful 1958 Fender Stratocaster is hiding an amazing secret under its hood, due to the fact that its been fitted within its 58 year life with an extremely early Fender Stratocaster neck from February 1954.
1954 is the debut year for the Stratocaster, so this must be among the first to be produced. Initialed TG…Tadeo Gomez, who many will recognise as being one of the early fender craftsmen. The guitar also sports the neck plate from the 54 guitar. The body is as it left the Fender factory in 1958 other than we had to have the Neck and middle pickups rewound. This was done from the pickup itself allowing us to leave all the virgin solder joints undisturbed….nice!
