Masterbuilt guitars have been around as long as Fender's custom shop division, which began in 1987. At the time, there were two masterbuilders, John Page and Michael Stevens. Their original builds are often highly sought after by collectors. As of 2019, Fender's Masterbuilt roster includes Dale Wilson, Paul Waller, Stephen Stern, Jason Smith, Yuriy Shishkov, Todd Krause, Dennis Galuszka, Greg Fessler, Kyle McMillin and Ron Thorn. The guitars envision by the Fender Custom Shop and their masterbuilders have always been inspired by the original Fullerton CA made instruments. 

Some of the most valuable Masterbuilt guitars include the Stevie Ray Vaughan "Number One" Stratocaster, and the Eric Clapton "Blackie" Stratocaster. All Masterbuilt guitars though hold their value exceptionally well. Today, you can also own a Gretsch, Jackson, or Charvel masterbuilt piece as well!
