1956 FenderStratocaster – Sunburst

Although it may look like a new guitar at first, this is a fully original 1956 Fender Stratocaster in Sunburst! This piece has been beautifully maintained but still played, as evidenced by the light fretboard wear and buckle rash on the back. The plastics and hardware hardly show their age, and the neck finish is fully intact. This lightweight body helps the notes ring out; even unplugged, this guitar is loud and crisp!
