1956 John Cruz made 1999 Cunetto Super Relic With Fat V Profile 1957 Neck
Look at last 6 pics.. This Cunetto Black Lights Out (Glows) like a Real PRE CBS Strat finished in CORRECT Nitro would! I have a headstock picture next to a 2012 Fender Relic... You'll see my point..:)This is a Cunetto Strat, But this is when they first started using Fender Custom Shop Decal on back of headstock instead of burning the logo in
Look at it. It's is Dark Deep Patina Vintage Hue in neck color, Weather checked more than pictures show. FAT V Neck. Plays and Sounds like a Dream!
These Strat's I'm buying now, are the cream of the crop, Players, Lookers, Make you want to play Stratocaster's,what I own and would want.
COA and all case candy, All Orig here!
John Cruz Made!
(In response to buyers asking, why is this a Cunetto)
Fender seen dollars signs and Fender did away with that process in late 1999, .... BUTT Many parts, necks, and bodies were being used for builds even into early 2000. Just like at the end of any year, Fender doesn't throw away all dated that year parts on Dec 31st
This is a Strat that was one of last to be done by Vince Cunetto.. I have sold many over the years, and I NEVER Played one, I did Not think was Great, not a 1.. period.
Every 1996-1999 Relic has Bell Tone over All other Relics made now! .. Yes Yes Vince done a nice job, yes better than Fender in my book.. As Every Guitar company Rep, started on the early years of trying to make a product that is Top Notch. You only get 1 time for a 1st impression.. That simple. Word gets out it's so so,or sucks it's labeled that for life. Fender had, used the Best wood in this era. Just as every other in the Guitar business. Why is a 1959 Les Paul cost 300k, and sells for that? Gibson found that magic wood and components in making PAF pickupds that year. It's in the wood!
