A rare Fender Custom Shop guitar that was on display at the 2009 NAMM exhibit!
This Limited Edition Custom Shop 1956 Stratocaster Relic Electric Guitar is a one-of-a-kind custom shop guitar that was actually displayed at the 2009 NAMM booth.
By 1956, the still-young Stratocaster was really starting to come into its own; Fender built only 50 Two-color Sunburst and 50 Desert Sand models for the Custom Shop Limited Collection.
Features include a premium ash body with a two-color sunburst finish, a one-piece large U-shaped maple neck with 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard and 6105 frets, three custom-designed single-coil pickups with hum-canceling reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup, five-way switching, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuners and a single-ply parchment pickguard.
