Fender 1956 Stratocaster

Since the specification change of the body material was changed in '56, it is a characteristic year in which the anch material and the alder material are mixed.
If the core material is different, naturally, the sound will also be greatly affected, but there will be no doubt that there is a personality and attractive tone.
The unit has a good response to picking and the harmonics when the code is rang and the harmonics are also quite comfortable. Trevorie was not felt so much, and I received a soft impression while being caught.

Basic cavity of the '50' '. The control part changes in the middle of the '59999 to a white 1-ply of 8-stop, and the part of the screw holes changes to the shape where the part of the screw hole is issued. In addition to the screw holes in the part that is hidden in the pick guard, three pins holes of the jiggain (it seems to be two places around '58.) And a total of four of the jack cavities It is. Body dating is described in the back spring cavity.

The groove passing the wiring cord of the rear pickup unit is quite rough. Although there is individual difference, it is finished to a certain depth that is also freehand from around 57

"Switchcraft" jack is adopted. Another smaller hole can be confirmed next to the bis holes, but this is a pin hole that can be emptied at the time of jigging, and the body is similar to the body (a part that hides the pick guard), and a total of 4 places. .

It is the body dates mentioned in the spring cavity. It is a pretty rough roughly written by handwriting, so it is hard to see a little bit in '56 years.

Top & Back Contour seem to be bigger in '57, but after that, the area seems to be narrow and shallow. It has been changed in detail, so there is a difference depending on the year.

The neck pocket is painted overall. The lacquer peeling is also matched with the body and neck, so it will definitely set the original. From around 62, the hanger will be installed and painted in the neck pocket, so the paint will only be ride.

Original pickup using black fiber paper above the bobbin. Masking tape that combines the wiring is also firm. Cylindrical Arnico Type V, coil with a 5 mm diameter of diameter, using "AWG (American Wire Gauge) # 42" for the pickup magnet. Paulpiece is a "stagger" type that is different from the height in each string in stratocaster, and it has been adopted to the "staggered" type with different heights.
※ Alnico type V: Aluminum (Al), Nickel (Ni), Cobalt (CO) with aluminum (Al), nickel (Ni), cobalt (CO), by the way, the origin of alnico is simply arranged by the element symbol.

Basically, the serial number is one of the key points as an element that identifies the produced age, but there is no error due to the change in system including the production process, as well as the serial and manufacturing date There are also individuals with extremely distant individuals, so it does not necessarily match. It is also possible to easily exchange parts, so it is necessary to determine comprehensively, including each part, including each part.

The pot is "stackpole" type of groove type. Pot Date is "304633", so it can be determined to be 33 weeks of '56. Capacitor is a "Corneldubilier" 0, 1μF 150VDC, and switches made of "CRL" originally with "CRL" original. Aluminum shield plates cover only the control part, but from around 59, it changes to the size covering the entire back side with the change of the pick guard specification. In addition, the pot is also used in the bottom of the bottom, and the type of circular groove is used.

You can check with '56 in handwritten dating. It is difficult to see it, so it is hard to see.

Characteristic "V-neck". In the beginning of the appearance of the '54 years, it is a thick grip with a triangular thickness, but from around 56, the thickness of the grip is slightly thinner and the angle of triangle is stronger. The next year will be more angular, so the peak of the so-called "V-neck" specification will be '57 years. Subsequently, neck shapes are also slightened and transition to flat grip. Also, in the case of one piece neck, the Walnut material is filled in the rod groove part because the truss rod is used from the back, and is called "Skunk Stripe".

The peg is "kluson" coverage type. In the initial type up to the previous year, it was a type that has not been imprinted at the top of the cover, but from around 56, "Kluson Deluxe" was engraved "Kluson Kruson (single line)" and it is adopted until around 63 increase.

From the middle of this year, the string guide has been changed from the round type to the press-processed wave-style. There is no peeling of the logo and it remains beautifully.

It is characterized by being a sudden almost such that the shape of the fingerboard from the head and stock is lowered. The Rosewood specification from '59 is a big gentle almost.

A separate type tremolo block that integrates "Inertas block" that functions as a "bridge" and a tail piece. The name of this "synchronized tremolo" that achieved a novel idea is attached from the meaning of moving with the bridge plate integrated and the inertia block integrated during arming. From around 57, a deep type of "Fender Pat. Pend." Grooved to the saddle is also adopted, but both are often confused.

It is a wood screw for pick guard (upper 8) and jack (2 below). From around 58, change to the tapping screw that has been cut to the top.
