Yes. This announcement was waiting in my email. The Fender Custom Shop folks letting me know that a new ’56 NOS Strat Master Built by John Cruz had just arrived in Toronto. Just in time for my birthday.
Let’s look at this guitar.
Stunning. Just stunning. Shoreline gold with a Tobacco burst finish. An incredible figured neck. Gold hardware.
Cosmos Music has it for only $12,500.
Oh well. It was the wrong year anyway. I need a 1958, not a 1956.
