  • This late '56 Stratocaster weighs just 7.10 lbs. and has a two-tone sunburst solid alder body, contoured on the back and lower bass bout. One-piece fretted maple neck with a nut width of just under 1 11/16 inches, a wonderful thick "V" neck profile. Small headstock with decal with Fender "spaghetti" logo in gold with black trim. Three white ABS plastic-covered black-bottom single-coil pickups with staggered polepieces and nice, balanced outputs of 6.14k, 5.79k, and 5.82k. Single-layer white ABS plastic pickguard with eight screws. The neck has a pencil mark of "12-56" and the tremolo cavity has a pencil mark of "6-56". This guitar is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition. There are a few small surface chips on the edges and some small scratches on the back of the body. There is a light amount of wear to the fretboard which is mainly confined to the first nine frets. The original frets show some light playing wear but have plenty of life left in them. Housed in its original Fender "Tweed" hardshell case with brown leather ends and orange plush lining (9.25).
  • One of just 32 guitars finished in factory cream - this is one of the very last run of the much loved double cutaway 'Juniors' with rounded horns. Officially marked in the Gibson ledgers as "LP-TV Cream". This exceptionally rare guitar weighs just 6.50 lbs. and has a nice, fat nut width of 1 11/16 inches and a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches. One hot black P-90 pickup with an output of 7.77k. Single-ply tortoiseshell pickguard with four screws. Combination "wrap-over" bar bridge/stud tailpiece with two adjustment screws. There is a fair amount of belt buckle wear on the back of the guitar and a few small marks on the top and edges of the body, but the top shows really well and so we will still give it an (8.75) excellent plus condition rating. Housed in a later (seventies) Gibson four-latch black hardshell case with purple plush lining (8.75).
