FACTOIDS & TRIVIA

In honor of its 40th anniversary, Fender released a limited edition reissue of the original `54 Stratocaster in 1994. The accuracy with which the original has been reproduced is, sadly, not 100 percent with the headstock shape being the most glaring error.  Only 1,954 of these guitars were made.
