2016 Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt 1960s NOS Stratocaster (SOLD)

Now this is a really special guitar: a Fender Custom Shop 60’s Strat in Candy Walnut Custom Colour Master Built by Jason Smith (Fender Custom Shop Master Builder since 2003). It was handpicked by one of the major guitar stores in the UK and it was up for sale for more than £4K…the Master Built series guitars are absolutely the top ones from Fender. There are only a few Master Builders and these guys build guitars for the biggest names in the music industry. This guitar was built by Jason Smith who is the son of Mr Dan Smith (the Dan Smith era Fenders are still very highly respected on the second hand market). He has crafted fine instruments for players and acts including John 5, Michael Landau, Flea, Josh Klinghoffer, Geddy Lee, Steve Harris, Reggie Hamilton, Linkin Park, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Neon Trees and many others…you can read about Jason on the Fender Custom Shop website. Here is Mr Jason Smith with this guitar at the Fender Custom Shop factory:

So yes as you can imagine the specs, the finish and everything really is second to none!
Premium quality alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, 60s C neck profile, 9.5” radius, Josefina Campos hand wound pickups…

It’s in very near mint condition (only a few little playing marks, hence the price but no buckle rash, or any dings or dents). It comes with its Custom Shop certificate and obviously with the original case and candy (not been used).

A new Master Built NOS Strat would set you back £4500++ easily but get this one, in very near mint condition for just £3000 – it’s cheaper than some normal non master built Custom Shop models at the major stores! This is a fantastic investment as it’s a one off guitar built by a well respected luthier, not a production made instrument! SOLD
