    What I can't understand is that it is an AVRI '56 - they weren't making Strats like that in '56.

    Or am I missing something?

    Not a vintage accurate copy for sure.This limited edition model came out just at the end of the entire Pure vintage line which were being discontinued to be replaced by the current American Original series.So to clear the remaining inventory of parts for the 56 reissue they issued this limited run with a unique finish and look.They know that limited edition batches will always sell well because they appeal to a niche market.They used the basic parts of a regular 56 but added a twist even if not vintage correct.But it does look like the 1953 prototype Stratocaster:
