Stunning limited edition strat built by one of Fender’s greatest senior masterbuilders - Yuriy Shishkov.  He built a limited number of these special collectors guitars to celebrate the 50th birthday of the strat, with the focus of making it the most authentic and accurate reproduction of the iconic 1954 strat that Fender have ever created.

 

It has a closet-classic/light relic treatment with tonnes of lacquer checking and a few small dings etc. The ageing is difficult to capture on photos (although we've tried by bouncing light onto the surface) and it has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated – the checking is all over the body and looks beautiful. It's a guitar that will appeal to both collectors in addition to players.

 

The attention to detail on this guitar is astonishing. Custom handwound 1954 pickups with period correct Alnico 3 poles (slightly wider than later Alnico 5's), providing the most accurate '54 tone available, and controlled by the traditional 3-way switch. The comfortable and chunky "U" profile Maple neck has vintage-sized frets and Fender's traditional 7.25" radius. The Custom Shop produced chemically-accurate and lab-tested Bakelite plastics for the short skirt knobs, rounded-edge pickup covers, and period correct "football" switch tip. The bent-steel Fender-stamped bridge saddles are painstaking reproductions of the originals from 1954. The stunning grain of the Ash body shines through under the accurately mixed and applied Two-Tone Sunburst finish. The serial number was stamped on the real tremolo plate by pre-CBS Fender employee Roger Centeno using the original die stamp, completing the package on this amazing collector's piece.

     

This special and highly-collectible guitar comes with its paperwork, the case candy as shown in the photos, and its limited edition COA (signed by Yuriy himself). The guitar also features a very unique ‘reverse’ 50th anniversary 'Poodle' brown case to keep it protected.
