then one comes through the shop that really steals the show! This 1956 Stratocaster is a
truly phenomenal guitar. The original finish is in very good condition, with only a few
major dents to show its age. There is some substantial buckle wear on the back, but other
than that it is quite clean. The neck feels beautiful, with no dents or noticeable wear on the
back or the fingerboard. With a total overall weight of 7.45lb, this is also a very
comfortable guitar to hold and play. The original pickups have lost none of their chime or
