Dez lookbestguitar

By Dez Wenticurr

from Michigan (Currently on tour)

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Limited 1956 Strat Relic Electric Guitar:

The over all look of the guitar is intriguing, because of the fact that it is a 1956 it is so old-but I love that it is in that good of shape for being how it is. I'm not sure that I like the scratch marks, if I were to cover them up it would make me alittle sad, just because it would take the character away from the guitar.

I've owned many Fender Strats....

By Bluesman Rick

from Seabrook, NH

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Limited 1956 Strat Relic Electric Guitar:

I've owned a '67 Stratocaster, 70 Stratocaster and many American Stratocasters over the years. I recently purchashed a '56 Fiesta Red with Maple neck Strat and....itis one ripping guitar. The power pick up design of '56 makes this baby scream or sound as soft as a baby's behind for the blues. Get one while they last at resonable prices.
