    Thank you sir! I once had a maple neck strat, though a mim one, but for the time being, it was great. So ever since i've been on a hunt for a really good one - and i did! I think this might be a keeper!

    Were Fender still using ash bodies on sunburst Strats as late as 1957?

    Were they using 9½" radius and giant frets? No point in hair splitting, it's a lovely looking guitar though.

    No, but the custom shop did! ☺ i love old school specs, but i don't mind a 9.5 radius fretboard with big frets. I dont like vintage ones though.. But if i were to buy a vintage correct strat, i'd go for a pre 2017 AV series.

    Amazingly beautiful. I just saw a video of Joe B with an awesome 56 (?) hardtail just like yours, and it sounded glorious.

    Enjoy that baby!
