We proudly present an exceptional Fender guitar. An all original 1956 pre-CBS Fender Stratocaster in its original Blond finish.
This Stratocaster is one of the holy grails from Fender. There is very few left of these rare Blond 50’s Stratocasters. Overall the Blond finish on the ash body is absolutely gorgeous and it’s not only looks amazing, but it’s a truly fantastic player with an incredible woody/resonance vintage tone.
The original single-coil pickups matched with the solid maple neck produces a punchy/twangy tone. There is no doubt that this piece is a collector’s grade, but it definitely deserves to be played. Comes complete which includes its original bridge cover, tremolo arm, polish cloth, and strap. Further more a periode correct and very valuable hang tag that was only produced up til 1956. ( with empty serial number)
The guitar has a great playing soft v-shape neck with great original frets. Plenty of life left in the nut and frets. The top edge of the body has brittle finish thats flaking off. Aside from that, it’s in excellent shape with some nicks and dings around the edges, extremely minor finish checking and other cosmetic wear.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring are 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.
