1956 Fender Strat - 100% Original - In Socal for $28K

I know what you are thinking - has Jim lost his mind? What happened to the $200 vintage guitars. Calm down. This is a bargain hunters blog and the fact is if this is exactly as the seller says then it is a bargain. Average market price for an all original 1956 Strat w/ OHSC right now is about $38K. So this one is almost $10K below market value. Just in case you wanted to add a nice vintage guitar to your 401K retirement plan (hehe).

About a week ago I went to the Vintage Room at GC in Sherman Oaks CA and played an original 1956 Strat just like this one - soft V maple neck, two tone Sunburst, all original hardware and pickups - and it was Da Bomb! The frets on that one were almost totally gone and the Maple board, neck and body had serious roadwear to the point of looking like a major relic - and they wanted $40K for it. After playing that one for 10 minutes I was almost tempted to buy it. This one looks much nicer for over 25% less.

BTW - A 1956 Stratocaster like this is a lot more stable and sexier than Google stock at $700 a share.

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
