Description: Electric Guitar - 1954 - 55 Stratocaster Sunburst
Body marked 12/54 on the inside back and a 2 above that, neck signed "TG-1-55" by Tadeo Gomez, and tape on the inside by Beck 1-28-5?, this is the person that soldered the electronics. Looks like we have lost the wammy bar, the original pickguard and electronic parts will come with the guitar, only two pickups on it, looks like at one time the guard was cut away for a humbacking pickup in the lead position, and the body of the guitar routed a little make it fit. This was then replaced back with standard style Stratocaster electronics. The serial # 8618 is on the metal plate on the back of the guitar, indicates a 55 Strat ... but body is marked 54 inside. ASH body, Maple neck, round string tree on peg head, old style peghead decal, two tone sunburst body finish, and typical Stratocaster ornamentation and hardware. Comes with original tweed covered hard case, the case is really rough and needs work.
