Our absolute favorite period of the Fender Custom Shop - the early years. This was a time when there were only a small amount of orders and things were truly being hand built, not mass produced "limited edition" relic runs of 100 with black knobs instead of white. No, this period of the Fender Custom shop was when artistic expression was encouraged, and a guitar like this is the perfect example.

This is a Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster finished in a Champagne Sparkle / Holoflake, a rare and time intensive finish and lights up from every angle. The flame neck and rosewood board add both familiarity and class to an iconic design and the pickups are vintage voiced, with a robust and dynamic tone that never gets thin or shrill. This infinitely versatile Strat is comfortable both in the studio and on stage and plays better than it looks. It is in EXC+ condition considering its age and comes with everything shown; it is a perfect choice for anyone looking for a true Custom Shop quality instrument that isn't interested in paying $4500 for a new instrument when you can get one that is perfectly broken in and resonant for less.
