That seems cheap, do only celeb models go for hundreds of thousands?

^Yep, and Gibson bursts. $50,000 is probably average for pre-CBS '50s vintage in super mint now, I've always thought of them as 20k ballpark but I don't pay much attention to that market.

Fucking weird. They weren't exactly cheap at the time, why would somebody buy one and never play it? I hate that kind of shit. Like unopened star wars toys.

It's been played; there's pick wear on the upper bout, a scratch on the forearm contour, etc
Not everybody pours beer on it or uses case candy. Maybe he washed his hands every time.

The neck is crazy, it's funny how seeing a '50s Strat without an amber tinted neck throws you off but that's how they all looked in the '50s.

I love seeing these. It's only really the same as what people sometimes do now with guitars, get it on a whim or as a gift and aren't really in the loop about guitars so just store it away. Only difference is that now the market is so saturated with so many models that who's going to be excited by a '90s/'00s Fender (no matter of series) in 60 years? "Oh there's a(nother) '90s reissue of the '60s version" "Grandad, why did you buy a 'Jag-Stang'?"

My father in law died 20+ years ago and left a '78 tele. His wife never thought/wanted to sell it so that happens sometimes too.

Maybe he popped it under the bed while he went to Vietnam.

But the guitar was made 3 years after the war in Vietnam ended.
