Send me a message if your interested!


Classic Strat, two tone sunburst and reliced like it was really from ’56. Besides the five way switch and the case, this guitar is an original Custom Shop Time Machine model. With all the ’56 details. From the Custom Shop 50s pickups to the vintage tuners. Great resonance in it. Friendly price because of the non-original case and the fact that it used to belong to a smoker. So you can still smell the smoke a bit. Pretty light weighing 3.540 Kg

Comes with a non original hardshell case, replacement Certificate of Authenticity, original Fender Strap and Tremelo arm.
