Product Description

This 2004 50th Anniversary '54 Stratocaster was acquired by the consignor from Mike Eldred, former head of the Fender Custom Shop, unopened in its original carton. The only time this instrument has been out of its case was for our photographer to shoot the pictures for this listing, making this a truly unique collectible!

This instrument was made by Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder Chris Fleming, who was tasked with the 50th Anniversary Stratocaster project. The project wear level was designated "Closet Classic", but this guitar only shows mild finish checking with no dings or abrasions. This is the most accurate reproduction to date. Custom wound 1954 pickups with period correct Alnico 3 poles that are slightly wider than later Alnico 5's, providing the most accurate '54 tone available. The "U" profile Maple neck is fretted with vintage-sized frets and radiused to Fender's traditional 7.25" radius.

The Custom Shop produced chemically-accurate and lab-tested 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 Roger Centeno using the original die stamp, completing the package on this amazing collector's piece.

This instrument is in mint condition. The original setup, including the factory-installed strings, has not been changed. The guitar will ship with the original box, both included cases, and a complete set of paperwork and accessories. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any collector!

Includes: Two Original Hardshell Cases, Complete Paperwork Set, Complete Accessories Package
