Description

this guitar will be on reverb until the 24th April

Very unique guitar today !

This is a very rare & early special ordered Custom Stratocaster made for Norms Guitars by the Fender Custom Shop in 1998.

Its Maple Neck feels fabulous w/its AAAA Birdseye wood & feels delicious.

This is basically an early Master Build.

Its truly one of a kind for that shop that appreciates it as a great player & future investment.

The beautiful birdseye neck has been made by two famous fender’s maker as you can see in the photo : Herbert Gastelum & Oscar Pallares !!!

Upon reading about it here https://ww w.fender.com/articles/behind-the-scenes/longtime-fender-neck-guru-herbie-gastelum-retires-after-56-years (obviously delete the space from right after the “ww” 🤠 ), it was clear to me that this neck is the best out there.

Guitar bodies generally aren’t that important, but the necks sure need to be!

To quote the article: Herbie Gastelum was to necks what “Queen of Tone” Abigail Ybarra was to pickups – the indisputable “King of Feel.”
Even so, it appears that the body is signed by Oscar Pallares, who aswell went on to work in Fender’s Custom Shop, though in the 90s.

Neck is straight and got room.

Unfortunatly i don’t have the paperworks with this guitar, but it has beed certified by mail with the Fender customer support.
