This 1st video I made recently of 3 Custom Shops I have in stock right now for purchase. Hand picked or ordered built by me. All 3 of these Fender Custom Shop's are above your everyday run of the mill and They have Necks are to die for.
2001 Earliest Fender (Relic) Fender Custom Shop Fender Stratocaster Built For Normans Rare Guitar
Heck with reading anymore.,. I say it as I done lived it. 1996- to late 1999 Fender came back to life with Great wood.. The done something no one ever dreamed of. Sell beat up guitar's. They had some great wood in this time. You get 1 time for 1st impression! But the ride into Bell Tone really doesn't stop after Cunetto Era.. 2000 and 2001 are just as Killer in Real Old School Tone.. Again Wood Wood Wood is everything in a guitar.. I didn't read this, no one told me... I walked it..Now is any new Strat made after 2001 better in my opinion...I personalty do not own 1 Fender after 2001 as my own, not being rude or dislike new Fender..The good wood days are gone. With the internet that really started happening was around 2002,03 everyone was getting a computer.. and zillions started playing guitar as you could learn free and quick with the web. I put this in your hands plugged into my 59 Bassman, at night, dim lights. Blindfolded.. You swear you was pickin a Pre CBS 50's Maple Neck Strat!
Only 2 that was EVER MADE
Honestly.. This is one of the Best Sounding Playing Custom Shop Strat's I Ever Got in, or Played.Remember this Relic was started in mid 2001. Has 11th week 2001 Pots,8-9-01 assembly,11-2-01 Neck Date.. This is the way it was back then. You Paid, Put in Order, HAND Built taking months to get 1 Strat done. 1996 o end of 1999 Fender would build, Send Neck and Body to Cunetto, He Finish and Relic, He send Back to Fender They Built.. Back in 2001 you can't even name 1 of your friends who had a Fender USA Fender Custom Shop Relic.. That has chips and dings in it.. It was never heard of

It is Like Nothing Your going to Get Every Day..It's Magic....You know it when you strum the 1st cord..;)
If you had the Dream Buy a Great Strat ToDay, Look at Both the 1955 Relics I got at last couple pictures. Copper is ONLY One Ever Made, Other Burgundy Mist is 2 of 2 Ever Made.. BOTH Are Great! and 1955. YOU Never see 1955 Relic's... and Think.. When the Fender Custom Shop Builds a Rare Color. Highly Flamed Birdseye Maple Necks Strat for a Highest Long Term Well Know Dealer.. That has made Fender Millions of bucks over the years. They pull out the Good Shit and do him right. I'm not going to lie, Id take either of these 55 over any new C-Shop I have in my shop now. I have no reason to lie or alter my truth.. But Id say I know a thing or 2 over 18 years, way over 1,000+ Strats I sold.
