    If your Stratocaster.

    Strat/Stratocaster is a registered, legal trademark of FMIC. I guess that's fiction too.

    1954 Custom Color Stratocaster ??

    Pretty sure the first was Eldin Shamblin's gold 54. In fact, much to my shock a friend of mine is related to him and just a couple weeks ago she posted about his birthday which led to the following exchange (personal information redacted)

    New to Forum -inherited 1960s Strat

    Yeah, more pictures would be nice. The pickguard isnt stock, the F tuners indicate 1967 or later. I think one of the books I have has a serial number range that'll narrow it further.
