With some of the most exceptional figure we’ve seen on a Fender neck, gloss-black Nitro lacquer finish, and mid 1950s appointments, this Custom Shop ’56 Strat is a serious head-turner. It’s a stunning guitar.

Lightweight ash body, Deep C neck carve with 1st fret depth of .880” and .1” taper in thickness to the 12th, 9.5” radius fretboard, medium jumbo fretwire. Staggered pole pickups, 5 way switch, standard Strat wiring.

The guitar shows some wear to the body finish, with a few dings and chips along the edges, some light sinkage of the lacquer, and the patina of a 15 year old guitar that has actually been played, albeit rather gently. The back plate is missing, but the balance of the hardware appears to be original and in good shape. The neckplate screws were over-torqued at some point in the past, with some compression to the body wood and lacquer chips left to remind you not to do the same again.

Frets recently dressed, set-up with 10-46 strings here at the store. Pickups measure 5.85 – 5.85 – 5.9, and the guitar weighs in at 7.7 lbs.

With original case, case candy, original bridge cover and extra 3 way switch, COA, floor traveller, etc.
