2004 Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt John English '54 Strat!

This was a great series of guitars commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stratocaster! This particular one has some extra special specs unlike the rest of the series. This is part of the 50th anniversary Fender CS Masterbuilt series but was specifically spec'd out by Norman's Rare Guitars. You might not find another 50th anniversary '54 Masterbuilt with these specs. It looks very vintage.
You'll note that the guitar has a more accurate 2-tone sunburst finish with darker hue, more accurate pickguard and plastic parts and is just a great example that is a bit more vintage accurate. Beautiful light Relic Sunburst finish with all factory wear. Excellent collector-grade condition. The guitar plays and sounds amazing! The guitar comes with the original hardshell case, COA, Case Candy etc... Beautiful example by possibly Fender's best Master Builder ever. Closet Classic condition from the factory.
This is the most accurate reproduction to date. Custom wound 1954 pickups with period correct Alnico 3 poles that are slightly wider than later Alnico 5's, providing the most accurate '54 tone available. The "U" profile Maple neck is fretted with vintage-sized frets and radiused to Fender's traditional 7.25" radius.
The Custom Shop produced chemically-accurate and lab-tested plastics for the short skirt knobs, rounded-edge pickup covers, and period correct "football" switch tip. The bent-steel Fender-stamped bridge saddles are painstaking reproductions of the originals from 1954.
The stunning grain of the Ash body shines through under the accurately mixed and applied Two-Tone Sunburst finish. The serial number was stamped on the real tremolo plate by Roger Centeno using the original die stamp, completing the package on this amazing collector's piece.
