daves's guitars has new 57 reissues for $1250
I bought one last night...talked with them today. They said they were new but a few years old. I do not understand why Fender discontinued such a popular instrument, but I sure am glad they did.I got a seafoam green with a maple neck. Exactly the one I have wanted for years. They are listed under used fender's, as fender told them to do this. The condition they list is EC+. It may be best to call them, but i jumped on mine after they had closed last night, and just called for details today.
I hope this helps someone,
