Summary: This NOS 1956 Fender Stratocaster looks and sounds like any old school Fender should & it looks like a great example of the New Old Stock Fender classic. This Stratocaster has a beefy round neck & it sounds and plays great.

Body: Solid body Stratocaster with a beautiful 2-tone sunburst finish.

Neck: Maple neck with a maple fingerboard, dot inlays, 21 frets, Fender tuning machines. The frets are in great shape with a ton of life left in them. The nut width is 1 11/16” and the scale length is 25.5”

Pickups/Hardware: 3 single coil pickups, one volume knob & two tone knobs, 3-way selector switch (with an optional 5 way selector in the case)

Cosmetics: This guitar lives up to the term NOS (new old stock) and it shows very little wear. The previous owner bought it but didn’t use it a ton. There are some light pick scratches that are visible, but it really does look great!

Playability: This Fender plays and sounds great. We set it up with 10’s and the neck is straight, the action is low & the guitar plays with no buzzing or dead spots.

Modifications: N/A
