On the back of the headstock is a small oval decal "Custom Built / J. Smith / Fender U.S.A." Individual 'Kluson' Deluxe tuners with oval metal buttons. Single "butterfly" string tree with small metal spacer. Four-bolt neck plate with the serial number "LR00161" between the top two screws and "Limited Release / 50th Anniversary / 1957 Stratocaster / Fender Custom Shop logo. Three white 'bakelite'-covered black-bottom single-coil pickups, all signed "Abby" (Abigail Ybarra) "3-5-07" with staggered polepieces and nicely balanced outputs of 6.07k, 5.92k and 6.06k. Single-layer white plastic pickguard (.060 inches thick) with eight screws. Three controls (one volume, two tone) plus three-way pickup selector switch, all on the lower treble side of the pickguard. White plastic Stratocaster knobs with gold lettering. Fender "Synchronized Tremolo" combined bridge/tailpiece (six-pivot bridge/vibrato unit with through-body stringing). The heel of the neck is signed in pen "J Smith / 3/07 / 1957 Strat CC". The neck pickup cavity is stamped in blind "J S". The potentiometers are all stamped "013446". Housed in the original Fender 'Tweed' three-latch, rectangular hardshell case with tan leather ends and red plush lining, aged (9.50). Complete with all the original 'case-candy' including two certificates of authenticity, one stating the date "04/25/07", the model "57 Stratocaster Closet Classic" and the serial number "LR00161" and is signed by Jason Smith, the second certificate is signed by George Fullerton. This 'George Fullerton '57 Stratocaster Closet Classic' was master-built in 2007 by Jason Smith of the Fender Custom Shop to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Stratocaster and has all the correct 'vintage' features. George Fullerton starting working for Leo in 1948 and built some of the first Fender's ever made, his career was long and distinguished. George passed away in 2009. The guitar is in mint as new condition, hand built by Jason Smith and features a handwound set of Abigail Ybarra pickups. Together with the guitar comes a Fender Pro Junior Relic Tweed amp (9.50).
