How does one try to use a guitar that no one sells? I want to try a '57 Strat, and Guitar Center only carries modern guitars.

You get lucky and find it elsewhere.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.



If you resist change, you will be here forever.

Any other advice?

that's probably the best idea... check craigs list, or ebay listings in your area and contact the sellers.

I could try that, thanks. One local store may have the axe I want to try, but I was just checking.

check your local guitar shops. the one around me is a custom shop dealer. they have guitars ranging from the original 57 les paul gold top and fender custom shop relic to reissue gretch and charvel custom. not to mention all the high end boutique amps like the original Marshall plexi and conford(i think that's how you spell it?)

I really like the Classic Players Jazzmaster, but didn't like the '60s Classic Player Strat, I don;t know if that was the '69 pup's tone, because I want an early '60s late '50s tone. I assumed I wouldn't like the '57 or '62 Strat, but I want to check.

my 57 reissued strat is one of the best strat i ever played. each pickup has its own tone. and the neck just feel soo smooth. the 62 is about the same with different pickup i believe. apart from that i couldn't really tell the difference.

The '62 has the same pickups, only a different neck and fretboard, the '57 has a maple fretboard, and V neck, versus the '62s rosewood fretboard and C neck.
