This is a very rare & early special ordered “Custom Shop” Stratocaster w/a set-neck body construction that’s perhaps 1 of the earliest ones ever produced. Its groovy Sunburst finish is over an incredible AAAAA figured Maple top laminated over a pretty Black back & sides to its body. Its also got a solid Maple 1 piece neck w/a factory set neck design. Its got an early Reversed Headstock & an ebony fingerboard. This set-neck option never did convince Fender to keep this high line Strat on its special order option sheet for very long & went against most Fender buyers that luv’d its original 4-bolt neck design. Its loaded w/3 potent DiMarzio pickups including 2 single coil & 1 Humbucker making a very fancy Hair Band guitar while sporting a factory Floyd Rose Wammy Bar w/a lock down nut. Made w/out any pickgard still retaining its 5-way switch. She’s got all Black hardware that completes its stunning Hard Rock appearance. My friend John Page, who ran the custom shop for years, told me that Fender originally started w/a set-neck Tele design in the late 80’s. John stated that when John Suhr joined the custom shop Master Builders in 1994. This Strat was registered by the factory in February 23rd, 1994 on its COA making it 1 of the hippest & earliest full blow Custom Shop guitars. This is basically an early Master Built Strat w/its CN Custom Shop logo on the back of its headstock. These were made just as certificates were offered & we have rarely seen a Strat as beautiful & this special ordered until the full blown Master Built’s were offered. It’s neat mont & comes complete its original COA w/a Tweed hard case.
