Looking to buy my first CS Strat, which is listed as a 1956 NOS. Does the headstock look off? The decal seems closer to the edge than any others I have seen. Also, is the round string tree correct? The serial is R59XX and I have already emailed Fender for the specifics. Guitar is supposed to include the paperwork, case and COA. This is the best picture I have right now:

The round string tree is OK for '56, but it's hard for me to believe the Fender Custom Shop would let a guitar out the door with the decal off by that much.

Wow. That does look odd.

I'd be a little leery of that one too. I'd need to see it in person and if really interested but still in doubt have the seller pop the neck off to look at the markings.
