For an additional charge you could order gold hardware and custom colors. 1957 saw the profile of the neck changed for a short period, from a C to a V shape. Such a change was prefered by, among others, Eric Clapton. The '57 became a legendary guitar. Now you can own one! Ok, not an original but the next best thing. Fender have recreated the '57 in their custom shop relic series, right down to the correct screws used to hold the pickups in place, it even looks like it's been gigged since 1957!
