All you see, you get! Well Made by the Master. This was one of first Relic Custom Shop's to go full bore with Fender doing all the work. Remember back when Fender did few Custom Shop in 1993-95, then Fender farmed out the Relic's to Vince Cunetto to paint and relic in his very small shop. Fender did NOT know if the relic's take off. Back then you rarely never seen a relic, as you waited a year and paid up front to get made. Go ahead go buy somthing, and wait a year. Well in 1999 Fender took over and did all the work, thus not many builders had the know how and you still waited a year to get
Well Master Builder John Cruz built this. L@@K at the dead on 3 Tone Nitro Sunburst, just GREAT. This is a NOS Body, but has few little dings etc, but all in all 9.5+ shape out of 10 in my book
Notice JC has his mark stampped in body inside control cavity and back trem area. ONLY few early Fender Custom Shops have this. The Custom Shop stamp burned in body, and they did away with black shielding paint inside like Cunetto did.ALL You see you get, the
Neck Plate with correct Nickle Oval head screws
Complete Bridge, with killer looking trem arm and saddles
output jack and strap Buttons
and Alder Body
Strat was 7-1/2lbs together. Look close at pictures, this Be the one that looks and is Fender's Best from Old School. Now days the custom shops are made in the 100s everyday, Back then, they was hand built, not CNC computerize like we live now!
