This 2009 Fender 1956 Stratocaster Relic isn't a standout in the area of bling, like some of the recent additions to our shop, but it does hit one sweet spot in my eyes.  The relic work is light and realistic, unlike some Fender Custom Shop product that bears unusual and unauthentic neck wear, heavy beating marks, etc.

I see this guitar being someone's main axe, offering the classic looks, V neck, and tone of a 50s Strat without the baggage attached to rare, limited edition guitars with their elevated price tags and collectability.  That's not to say that this guitar isn't of the build quality of others.

The guitar plays perfectly, shows very little use on the frets, is all original with no changes, repairs, or issues.
It also comes with all the case candy and a COA.  The case is not original to the guitar.  It is a new Fender case in black, where this guitar originally came with a tweed case.
