    1956 Fender Stratocaster. Serial number 09286. This guitar is featured in the book History of American Guitars (p.73) and was an integral instrument in the Scott Chinnery guitar collection, a noted collector whose foremost achievement was making the general public realize that the guitar was a work of art and an important icon of American culture. 1956 was the year Fender transitioned the Stratocaster from the traditional ash body to alder wood bodies. This example has the traditional ash body which is more collectable than the alder. The guitar features the classic Fender Sunburst finish along with a maple fretboard and vibrato. The neck pickup has been professional rewound by Fender Inc. In Excellent condition, the guitar comes with its original hard shell case. Accompanied by certificate of authenticity from nationally known expert Vintage Connection, which in part states "no breaks, repairs, or other issues not stated." From the Jimmy Crimmins 'Vintage Connection' Guitar Collection.
