    The elongated walnut plug seems to be common in these months of 54 from what I have read and seen. Also as has been stated this guitar has been listed at this price several time over the past 18 months and not sold. Everything I have read too says the actual "Virginia" EJ's #1 he used was serial # 0086 and this is another 1954 Strat he picked up and later sold.

    I find humor in the $352.21 shipping charge...

    Really! It’s not 100 grand! It’s only $99,793.72 + shipping!

    Crazy money, and $352 to ship it? For that much is a limo driver going to deliver it to me?

    Those elongations were painted over the actual plug. But, oh my . . . the GAS is bad. I may have to settle for one of the '54s in the $18,000 to $24,000 range. :(

    Definitely seen this guitar listed for a long time. We all know asking price and selling price are two different things.
