This is an insanely cool original 1956 Blond Strat. The blond finish is original but had spray paint on top of it way back when, which was meticulously removed by a past owner. Some of the finish has been removed but much of the original finish remains as can be seen in the photos and the blacklight photos. The blond you see is from the factory; not refinish. Fretboard was refinished when new frets and nut were installed. This guitar is well known having been sold by ATB guitars to Bill Pandolfi and I bought the guitar from Bill a number of years ago. If you're reading this then you know how rare blond 55 - 57 Strats are. I only know of a few others for sale and they are in the $140-$200k range. Guitar weighs 7lbs 4oz and comes with original case.
