John Cruz Masterbuilt. This was a great series of guitars commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stratocaster! This particular one was done by Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder John Cruz. Beautiful light Relic Sunburst finish with factory wear. This guitar shows some fret wear but there is still sufficient life left. There are few spots on the fretboard that have minor finish loss. The guitar is fairly clean overall. The guitar comes with the original hardshell case, COA, Case Candy etc...
Specs from Fender:
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.
