This Custom Shop Strat Made right after the famed legend Vince Cunetto era ( 1996-1999).. Fender built the Body, sent it to Cunetto for finish and relic/aging process, then shipped back to Fender and the Strat was assembled and all, and then sold. Back then you had to pay for the Strat, wait a year or more and you got it.. I'll say it now. I don't own any Strat as my own after 2001.. The newer ones are good guitar's, but not Great Guitar's.. It's in the wood.. Fender had/used great tone wood from 1996 thru 2001.. I have sold over 1,000 Custom Shops.. I p,played every single one.. I will own my opinion's on that subject..
John Cruz was Fenders #1 Builder at Fender Custom Shop back in 1999,
Neck Plate serial number R0109 Earliest # you will EVER Get
This Body Will Blow You Away!
109th made right after Cunetto stopped doing the Finishing and Relicing for the Custom Shop work....
Weight was 7-3/4lbs together...
The wear on this body is mostly from playing the Strat. I purchased the Whole Strat from a Professional gigging Guitar Player, who paid his bills and ate by playing in a band and studio work. I have pictures of Neck and Neck Plate showing you where the body came from. NOT Included in this sale
The last 2 pictures are John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers real Pre Cbs Strat.. This body has that same look and vibe.. !!!!
