"8/18/00 FENDER CUSTOM SHOP '56 NOS STRAT WITH RADICALLY FLAMED NECK. SERIAL NUMBER R6964 ON COA AND NECK PLATE.

SWAMP ASH BODY TOTAL WEIGHT ON DIGITAL SCALE IS 6 lbs - 9 oz. THIS FEATHER WEIGHT MAKES FOR INCREDIBLE RESONANCE. THE BEST I CAN TELL IS THE BODY IS ONE PIECE. THIS IS KILLER SOUNDING AND RESPONSIVE GUITAR.

COA SIGNED BY MIKE ELDRED WHOSE NAME APPEARS IN THE NECK POCKET AS WELL. INSPECTION CARD STAMPED BY JOHN CRUZ.

NECK IS 9.5" RADIUS WITH 6105 FRETS, VERY SLIGHT FRET WEAR. NUT HAS BEEN CHANGED PROFESSIONALLY BY PREVIOUS OWNER TO BUZZ FEITEN LAYOUT ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT A BUZZ FEITEN AFTER MARKET NUT. PLAYS IN TUNE.

NO RELIC'ING ON NECK BUT BODY HAS MINOR LACQUER SPIDER WEBS. A COUPLE OF MINOR DINGS AND PAINT CHIP AT TREBLE SIDE OF NECK POCKET. i TRIED TO GET IT TO SHOW IN PICS. THERE ARE MINOR DISCOLORATIONS TYPICAL OF STRAP BLEEDING BUT DON'T SHOW UP IN THE PICS.

PICKGUARD IS WHITE/BLACK/WHITE (UNLIKE TYPICAL SOLID WHITE), I DON'T KNOW WHY. GROUNDING SHIELD BEHIND THE PICKGUARD IS FULL SIZE LIKE A TRUE VINTAGE 1962 MODEL.

PICKUPS ARE WONDERFUL VINTAGE SOUNDING, WARMTH WRAPPED AROUND ARTICULATE CORE. WIRING IS TYPICAL OF 1956 EXCEPT FOR THE 5-WAY SWITCH.

PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE BUYING. ALL THINGS CONSIDERED THIS IS A STELLAR STRAT.

FENDER TWEED CASE WITH A MINOR BLEMISH THAT PROBABLY COULD BE CLEANED. GREAT SHAPE OTHERWISE..."
