Fender Custom Shop Time Machine Series 1956 Stratocaster NOS Black made in 2004 is now in stock!

The Time Machine Series is a series of guitars that reproduces the characteristic specs of each era with the high technology that only the Custom Shop can offer.
This time we have one of the 1956 Stratocaster model in stock.

The 1956 Stratocaster was a time when the specifications changed from the previous models.
The major change was in mid-1956, when the body material was changed from ash to alder, which is used in many Stratocasters today.
The body of this new model is made of 2-ply alder as well.
In the first half of 1956, the round string guide used in the early models was changed to the winged string guide that is still widely used today. Therefore, this model is also equipped with a feather-type string guide.
The pig guard is also 1-piece, and the specifications of the 50's strat are reproduced!

Vintage style 7.25 "R 1P maple fretboard is used.
The neck grip is a soft V-shape, which is easy to grip and play even when playing chords.

Three original black bobbins are mounted on the PU.
Although the capacitors and wiring materials have been replaced, the original sound of the Strat, such as sustain and dead tone, is still there with the alder body, not to mention its unique and lustrous sound.
You will surely get the 56 Strat sound which is great for both chord playing and single note playing!
The controls are wired with a 5-way switch, with simple controls for master volume, front tone, and center tone.

The body, neck, and head are all in good condition with some weather checks.
The body has scratches and dents, and the printings on the knobs are discolored.
Although scratches and dents can be seen here and there, the overall atmosphere of the weather checks, coupled with the original, gives it a more dignified appearance than the original.

This is a finely reproduced 56 Strat that represents the transitional period of Fender Strats.
It has some scratches and other condition, so you can feel the atmosphere of this guitar.
We highly recommend this guitar not only for those who are looking for a Stratocaster, but also for those who are looking for a vintage spec guitar!
Please consider this opportunity!
