Thinking of buying a 1954 Stratocaster replica, something that was built just how Leo would have built it in 1954, same specification, woods, finish, the lot... anyone know of anyone making something like this?

Loads of offerings from Fender, based on a '56. Close enough?

These are probably the most 'affordable':

Eric Clapton Brownie

edit: Shit it's expensive. There's this...

Or this looks kinda fun.

Do an second-hand AV '57 and change string tree.

Cool. This one looks exactly the same, and I know it sounds great.
