This is a really nice 2004 Fender 1956 Strat Relic that they dressed up with gold hardware.

The guitar is excuse-free, no changes, repairs, or issues.  It was purchased new by the previous owner and stashed, played perhaps a couple times before it came to us.  The trem arm has never been installed - see the sticker over the hole in the bridge.  The trem arm is included, but somehow was missed in our pics.

It isn't the lightest Strat, but it is a great player with some killer tone.  It is one of the better sounding Strats of the 30 or so we've had through lately.

The frets show little to no use.  The neck is perfect with a soft V feel, but not too thick,  There is room in the truss rod for future neck relief adjustments.

The pickups have a little more output than typical 50s reissues, but it is working for this axe.

The COA, original purchase receipt, strap and paperwork from Fender are included in the original hardshell case.
