Probably the most special contemporary Strat we’ve ever come across, this Custom Shop is an LTD (limited), Fender’s most selective collection. Only 100 were made, all by the prestigious masterbuilder Yuriy Shishkov. It is a reproduction of a 1964 L Series, transition-era. In an amazing Closet Classic finish (the checking is breathtaking, as well as the aged Olympic White and light relic process of the body), with a sound that would defy many original 64’s (no, we’re not exaggerating).

Yuriy Shishkov is considered the best masterbuilder in Fender, and this is definitely some of his best work.

In fantastic condition, this guitar radiates mojo all over! It is a nearly impossible to find guitar, and even less at this price. Includes OHSC, COA, tremolo arm and back tremolo cover.
