Description

A very interesting and rare spec limited edition Fender Custom Shop Strat. This one doesn’t follow any one year of Fender history, instead it combines a 50s maple neck and a 60s body with a magic pickup combination. A Texas Special, a fat 50s and a 69! The body is two piece alder and has been selected for a nice light weight. The shop floor traveller is available for download on this page and confirms this excellent spec. In terms of playability this guitar is silky smooth and very lovely to play. The sound is incredible, it has a resonant and woody tone acoustically but when you fire it up the sound from the custom shop pickups is amazing. The guitar is now seven years old and has been played. There is some natural wear in addition to the factory relic, but very hard to distinguish.  It’s one of those that is far too nice to leave in the case, it needs to be played! There is plenty of fret life left and it’s had a full set up, fret level, dress and polish. A very rare and interesting limited edition model, possibly a one off custom build as this spec isn’t listed in the 2012 custom shop collection. A stunning guitar which looks the part. Very heavy relic on the neck. The original purchase receipt is included from 2012. Today these limited edition custom shop models or custom built Fender custom shops are retailing at over £3500 with recent price hikes and the weak pound in the UK.
