Weighing in at 7.5lb this ’56 born in the Fender Custom Shop is super easy to play with that lovely “worn in” feel you’d expect.

Perfect for blues, rock and everything in between this one is a super versatile guitar with fabulous attention to detail and an incredible sound.


The Strat boasts a fiery tone, thanks to a lightly flamed “V” neck profile and traditional alder body with Relic lacquer finish, matched to a set of hand-wound limited run John Cruz master design Strat pickups as the special sauce. The guitar sounds fantastoc with superb performance accross the board but the pickups really excel for the in the Blues and Rock genres.

The deluxe hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity as well as case candy shown is included (tremolo not pictured, but is included).


This particular guitar has been part of a private collection and as such has been extremely well looked after and not seen much use. The frets are in excellent shape and overall the guitar is in exceptional condition. The guitar has been aged to perfection by Fenders best as you would expect.
