Offered here is a Fender Custom Shop Strat of the highest order, a '59 Relic by Masterbuilder Jason Smith. Built in 2014, this fabulous guitar has: a light Alder body with a nicely aged Sea Foam Green nitrocellulose lacquer finish and a total weight of just 7.25 pounds (7 pounds, 4 ounces); a relatively large C-shaped Maple neck with depth measurements of .875" at the 1st fret increasing to .950" at the 12th and with much of the finish removed for a smooth, non-tacky feel; a lovely dark Indian Rosewood fretboard with 9.5" radius, 6105 fret wire and a 1.650" bone nut; and for electronics, three hand-wound 50's style single coils with VTT and five-way switching.
This guitar is just amazing. It's light weight, big C-shaped neck and the marvelously aged Sea Foam Green finish make this a particularly desirable guitar. Even my Fender Customer Service rep was lusting over this one! As you would expect from a Masterbuilt instrument, this thing plays amazingly well with it's superb setup. The tone is just what you would hope for; vintage Strat quack, snap and clarity.
This one owner collector piece has seen little to no play and the factory aging aside, shows little to no wear, frets included. It comes in it's original brown G&G case along with the certificate of authenticity, build sheet and all the original accessories.
If you are looking for one of the best Stratocasters available from the Fender Custom Shop, this near new Jason Smith Masterbuilt is worthy of your consideration. Even better, it is priced well below the $7K that a new example would cost. Superb!
