    1956 Fender Stratocaster "See Thru Blonde." Serial number 15294. One of the most rare and sought after custom color Stratocasters ever! In 1956 Fender made sunburst finish guitars almost exclusively unless specially ordered as a custom color. Professional players from that era would not have ever been caught playing a custom color guitar. This accounts for the scarcity and collectability of such instruments. This guitar is in incredible condition. The color is referred to by collectors as "See Thru Blonde" and is one of the earliest custom-colored Fender Strats we have seen in 30 years! There is some minor wear on the fret board, but for a 1956 custom color, this guitar is exceptional. Excellent condition; includes the original Fender tweed hardshell case. Accompanied by certificate of authenticity from nationally known expert, Vintage Connection, which in part states "no breaks, repairs, or other issues." From the Jimmy Crimmins 'Vintage Connection' Guitar Collection.
