    The neck date on the 0002 strat was June 1954.

    Ahh so #159 then. Well that's still quite amazing. I just wish he would've scalloped it and put his YJM Furys in it just to watch the world burn :p:p

    Haha, judging by the Youtube comments, he's already got enough people worked up with the way that he stores his guitars and just casually bashes his '54 into the others lying around.

    After that video Yngwie has taken a lot of flack about how he stored his guitars.
    Since then he has made sure every guitar he owns has a proper guitar stand.
    The black '54 is in the front row.:)

    Hey Wayne! Check out the post "How old were you . . . " last page. Fretmeltkid has a '54 Strat that was painted white with housepaint and he removed it to reveal the original sun burst finish!
