Description

From 2013 this is one of the legendary ‘Guitar Guitar’ dealer select 59 custom shop Stratocasters which features a superb and uniqe spec. A hugely playable instrument with all the vintage vibe you need, but with some modern features to enhance the playablity. There’s an extremely comfy 7.25 – 9.5 comound radius, hand would Custom 60’s Handwound by Josefina pickups, a 22 fret neck with truss rod adjustment at the head end for faster and easier set up. It features a nice medium – slim C neck with rolled edges. The playability and sound is superb and exactly what you’d expect from such a well specc’d dealer select Strat. It comes in the original case with the candy, certifcates, strap, trem arm and ashtray bridge cover. This lovely example hasn’t been played very much atall in it’s life so the frets are in great condition, nicely polished and level. At the time of writing you’d expect to pay close to £4000 for a Fender custom shop dealer select with this spec. Worth noting that when new it came with the the locking vintage style machine heads. We have replaced these with Fender Custom Shop relic standard slotted post tuners which are far easier to use (break a string mid gig with those locking ones and you’re in trouble). The original tuners are in the case to preserve the 100% original status of the guitar but we don’t reccomend re fitting them.
