1996 Custom Shop 50's NOS Black Stratocaster. Early Custom Shop Strat from when production was much more limited. Vintage spec 7.25" radius and 10/56 Flamed Maple neck. Has some age related marks, the neck has a bit of lacquer flaked off around the 17th fret and a couple of light dings on the back but nothing serious. It's very resonant and plays well with a very 'vintage' tone. It sounds and feels very simular to an old '58 we own. These early Custom Shop Strats have become quite sought after. A really lovely older Custom Shop Strat! With Cert and original Tweed case with plenty of marks, but fully functional.
