Mike McCready’s 1958 Fender Stratocaster

This is one of the gutiar that Mike has been using on more recent tours, usually on “Even Flow”. This guitar is a completely original 1958 Fender Stratocaster finished in a three-tone sunburst.

I have a ’58 maple-neck Strat that I love, and use live sometimes for “Even Flow.” Like most players, I really like the feel of a worn-in old guitar. I don’t love the finish on a lot of necks, so when I get a newer one, I’ll sand it down a bit.
