First Fender Stratocaster on sale for $250,000

In the 60 years since it was created, the Fender Stratocaster has become a symbol for rockstardom — an axe wielded by musicians from Buddy Holly and Jimi Hendrix to the Arctic Monkeys.

Now, a guitar from the very first production line of Fender Stratocasters is going on sale in Nashville, Tennessee in the US, for a quarter of a million dollars (£150,000).

The sunburst-finish Stratocaster bears the serial number 0100. While some models of the guitar have lower numbers that begin with 0001, George Gruhn, who owns the shop selling the instrument, explained they were manufactured later in that first year of production — via redwolf.newsvine.com
