Replay Guitar Exchange is proud to offer this Fender Custom Shop masterpiece from 1998. It is a John Cruz build, serial number R4996, with Vince Cunetto relicing (the first relicing that Fender ever offered) on a gorgeous 3-tone sunburst finish. It bears a Fender Custom shop logo stamped into the back of the headstock (see photos). This is an exceptional handbuilt instrument from an era that (some say) produced some of the finest Fender Custom Shop guitars ever.

This Strat is in VG+ condition, notwithstanding the intentional relicing effects. It has an estimated 80% remaining fret life. Please note that the original Custom Shop case, case candy and certificate of authenticity are not included, but a Gator hard shell case is included.

As always, feel free to contact Replay Guitar Exchange via chat, email or phone for more details, or with any questions.
