He added, "I think it belongs in a museum ultimately. On the other hand, I don like to see them put in a museum setting where they will never again be touched without white gloves.

Fender Stratocaster, first produced in 1954, has been described as a guitar that changed the world. When it first arrived, its streamlined, space age contours seemed strange and perplexing to some. But the kids knew what to do with it. Buddy Holly played one. So did Jimi Hendrix, when he transformed the psychedelic experience into sound a decade later. Bob Dylan chose a Stratocaster for his revolutionary electric set, when he fired a defiant shot at tradition during the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.

The sunburst finish Strat bears the serial number 0100. Although some Strats have lower numbers that begin with 0001, Gruhn says they actually were manufactured later in that first year of production. He says the number one Strat was sold to an amateur who evidently took good care of it.

"This one didn go to a famous performer," he said. "It actually went to Joe Blow Public. But it stayed in good condition, hardly used. And then, a bit over 30 years ago, Richard Smith, who is a curator today at the museum of the city of Fullerton, Calif., where this guitar was made, bought this guitar."

However, Gruhn says the very first production model Strat is something like a national treasure.

Over the years, a fair number of vintage Strats have sold for $100,000 plus, with some approaching $1 million. Eric Clapton "Blackie" sold for $959,500 in 2004 and recently the Stratocaster that Dylan played at Newport sold for a record $965,000.
