Vince Cunetto was responsible for bringing this concept to Fender in the first place, and he worked as a contractor for fender for 4 1/2 years Finishing,aging the bodies, necks and parts.
Cunetto's work is legendary and these guitars have become extremely collectible. They are not just for the collector, they are superb sounding and playing guitars that accurately represents the vibe of the fifties and sixties Fenders.
100% Original, All of it. Unreal Player, Sounds just as Good un plugged as plugged in. Fender does not make them like they use to, and Most likely Never will!

Waited up to a year

I Find, and Buy the Great ones. I pass on 95% (or more) of the guitars people offer me, or I see on my travels. It's about the "TONE". That Simple. I enjoy what I do.
