We present an original 1956 pre-CBS Fender Stratocaster in its original Sunburst finish.
This Stratocaster is all original and 100% complete except for a professional refret and new handcrafted bone nut. Otherwise, everything remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks or any repairs. The Sunburst finish on the ash body is absolutely gorgeous and not only does it look amazing, it’s truly a fantastic player with an incredible woody/resonant vintage tone. The original black bottom single-coil pickups are very strong and balanced. There is no doubt that this piece is collector’s grade, but it definitely deserves to be played. Comes complete with its original tremolo arm.
The guitar has a great playing soft v-shape neck that is a joy to play. It’s in excellent shape with some nicks and dings around the edges, finish checking and other cosmetic wear.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original hardshell tweed case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
