Dandelion Powderman, w/o the beard you look a bit like John Lennon. LOL

I think I must've been high; very high. Hahah..

Okay I re-reamend. You DO look like Lennon w/o the beard. I was going back in the thread and now saw the pic of why I originally wrote that.

2007 Fender Custom Shop '56 Time Machine Strat Relic (Sunburst) 5-way switch installed.

not sure how to post pics but I have a collection of guitars amps and other stuff. I have a rosewood tele from 1969/70 like George Harrison (found in NYC) and an 68 ES 345 as well as a five strats and four resonators...I have played for more than 30 years and I have not sold a guitar in 25 years so the collection is large.

Don't know what you mean exactly, but I own them now, that's what counts for me.

But given to the date (Acoustics 1909, 1937, 1943 and Electrics 1951, 1952, 1976) they were made I would definitely say no...hahaha

By "original owner" I meant the first owner...ya know, the person that purchased the instrument when it was new.

I don't know your age btw so I'd have no way of knowing if the guitars are older than you are. Regardless though, it's an enviable collection. Love to have a batch like that myself.

Awesome man. I love those maple neck '50's Strats. I'm not crazy about rosewood fretboards on Fenders. I don't mind it on Gibsons or other guitars, but on Fender's I just much prefer the look of a maple neck.

What years are those from? One of those sunburst Strats looks like it might be closer to a 3 tone sunburst.

Thanks! They are from '54, '59 and '61. The '59 is a 3 tone sunburst refin (as of '58, sunburst Strats were 3 tone, although with the earlier versions the red was photo-reactive and faded quickly, so many '58s and '59s look like 2 tone sunbursts).

Wow! A '54! The first year of production! What serial number is it, may I ask?

Re: IORRians' guitars
Posted by: xke38 ()
Date: March 13, 2012 14:05

It's a June '54 one. Its serial number is 0255 (on the neck plate, as opposed to the trem cover, which would have been the case for the very first few Strats produced).

So cool. Love to be able to play a '54. Just out of curiousity, how would you characterize the feel of the neck? Strats from '56 and '57 had the V-shape profile and some of them I think were rather large ("boat-neck"). I'm thinking in '54 they didn't have a definite neck shape.

Also, that '59 must be from relatively early in the year because it's got a maple neck. Most pics of '59's that I see have rosewood boards.
