This glorious instrument remains the best selling Fender Strat of all time, a timeless classic, the 1950's Fiesta red Stratocaster.
This example is a custom shop '56 made in 2004, so it is a 20 year old guitar and what a guitar it is too!!

The overall condition is very nice, it shows mild play wear as you can see in the pictures, a little rubbing on the gold bridge saddles and some very mild marks on the finish noticeable close up under the right lighting conditions.

It has the COA and paperwork plus the case candy as shown. The original tweed case is included, but note while all catches close securely, the 2 end ones have no springs so require lifting "manually" if that makes sense?

We will set this up when sold to the buyers spec and string gauge as there are endless Strat players and playing styles.

Now prices..... there's a thing! If you hunt on the interweb thing you will find they still offer this exact model at prices from £4,299. I also found a handful of used ones from £3,000 to £3,300. So if you were every wanting to own one of this classics, this may just be the right time!
