For the Stratocaster's fiftieth birthday, Fender celebrated by having each Custom Shop Masterbuilder make a true-to-vintage '54 Stratocaster. This serial sprang from the bench of Galuszka, and it is absolutely delightful. The bridge pickup has plenty of chime, quack and twang, and it also has some lovely bell-like clang in the high-end. The neck pickup has robust warm low-end to go with broad, sonorous midrange and glassy highs. The middle pickup is balanced with full resonance across the board, and it has an extra bump in the upper mids to cut through the mix. All in all, it sounds like it could go toe-to-toe with a vintage Strat! Anyone looking for vintage Fender mojo should check this serial out!
This Masterbuilt marvel is in excellent condition with virtually no signs of play wear. It comes with a certificate of authenticity, a non-original Fender molded plastic case, and its original brown thermometer vintage reissue case.
