I have decided to finally sell my beautiful and beloved 1956 Strat. (I had always planned that it would be my son's college education, but was fortunate enough not to need it for that back when he went.)
All original, all parts, including original tweed case.
The guitar has obviously been played…it's not in "brand new" condition. But then, it is sixty-one years old.
It has been on many many recordings, a number of which are quite well known. People who have played this instrument include Jimmy Page, Joe Walsh, Billy Gibbons, Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughn, Carl Perkins, Lonnie Mack, Paul Burlison, and many more.
Before stating an asking price, I will see what you people think, and where the market is now. I do know that I was offered somewhat over the six figure mark about 16 years ago…but we shall see in today's world.
Naturally I later plan on Reverb.com, perhaps Ebay, and/or one of my friends who market such instruments, but I want anyone from PRW to have the first chance at it.
