Custom color's rarity, light weight and sound make of this guitar a winner.
Excellent action, smooth and easy maple fretboard with frets in good condition.
Very nice look, the body has a beautiful finish and wood-grain.
The weight is acceptable if compared to other ash-bodied Strats from the same era. Smooth action, frets and fretboard are in excellent shape.
in excellent working order and look great, no hidden flaws or holes whatsoever.
Probably the guitar has been refretted and the nut has been replaced.
The sound is great, hot and well-balanced, with the right amount of grit you'll expect from a '50s maple-neck Strat.

The three-way switch currently installed is new (but with the old original tip), but the original one is in the case, it's broken and I don't know if it can be fixed - but I think it's not impossible.
Everything else is 100% original, including pots, screws, knobs, tremolo arm, bridge and saddles, spring-cover on the back. The flamed neck makes this old Strat really special.
The neck, dated May '56, still has the "clubby" pre-V shape typical of '55; it has some wear and original nut and frets. but, compared to the '55 "no-lines" they have again the single-line stamped Kluson Deluxe words. The black-bottom pickups fixed to the single-ply pickguard have the original bakelite covers, two of which are broken from playing wear.
The Spaghetti logo on the headstock is in great shape, and next to the original round string-retainer there is another hole, professionally plugged and touched-up, from some mysterious "thing" once screwed to the headstock; whatever it was, it's out of the strings line, in a position which makes meaningless another string-retainer, so I have no explaination for it. Also the tone and volume knobs and the trem-arm and switch tips are made of bakelite.
The original circuitry shows potentiometers date February '56, paper capacitor, intact solder-joints, three way CRL selector switch and Switchcraft jack-socket.
