My 56 blonde Strat has the nickel hardware, so it's not a Mary Kay.
I like it better. :jim

Is that Blond or Olympic White? Every 50's Blonde Strat I've seen looked like the white guard mid 50's Tele's, more white than Butterscotch with Ash grain visible.

My 2007 Blonde Ash AVRI '57... Unfortunately, it's a case-queen these days. Haven't played it since I bought that CS '56 from Wildwood... :## :rofl

Definitely blond. It's an old low-res photo. :)
