Below is my buddy Ron playing this Tone Monster. Funny watching how he learn up side down playing. As he's left handed, but back then they just flip the Strat up side down, and went a at it!
1957 Mary Kaye CUNETTO Fender Relic Strat Tone & Playability To Die For!
Made in 1999 and still Cunetto's work, as Custom Shop Stamped into the back of headstock. After Cunetto, Fender just puts on a Custom Shop Decal Low Ser# R0468
Only one I ever had with the 1991 White Owners Manuals. All other after have the 1994, Black
100% Original but has a pro Jumbo Re Fret..
Was Pro owned and gigged...
Big Fat V Shape Neck Profile....One More Time.. BIG FAT V
Really Sweet as it gets folks:
Fender Finished and Reliced Cunetto Relic Stratocaster's are as close to PRE CBS Fender as you will ever get in life. The wood used, the finish work done by Vince Cunetto is just TRUE Bell Tone instrument's.Fender used the Best Tone Wood, it really was a 1995 (late 95) to 1999 of Fender thinking is the PRE CBS Strat's were in demand. Well they are.. AND ALWAYS Will Be!
These guitar's are twice the tone of new green wood Fender Custom Shop's Masterbuilt's, and same or cheaper in price as them guitar's...But Twice as good.. My opinion, and really anyones else's opinion that knows "TONE!"
Has a 5 way and the pickups are south pole alnico staggered magnets..beveled. Really Fender had North magnets in the 1950's, but these South Magnets (60's) give these Mary Kaye Cunetto the "THUMP" They Have*****
