Description: 1958 Fender Stratocaster guitar
The 1958 Fender Stratocaster had a number of changes, none I personally liked much. First the classic 2-tone sunburst (yellow to dark brown) was changed to a 3-tone finish (yellow to red to dark brown). Three color sunbursts are cute, but I personally enjoy the classic 2-color look better. The other thing that changed was the neck shape. The large backshape neck of the 1954 to 1957 Fender Stratocasters was gone, changed to a thinner more modern style neck shape. Again not my cup of tea. Still, 1958 Fender Stratocasters are very nice guitars.
Serial number range for the 58 Fender Stratocaster are generally 25000 to 30000 (some numbers with a "0" or "-" prefix on the neck plate). If you need to figure out the exact year of your pre-CBS Fender Stratocaster, use the serial number and the general features of the guitar. The serial number is located on the back metal neck plate. See the Fender Serial Number Info web page for help determining the year.
