Masterbuilt '63 Stratocaster, finished in lovely "see-through" Blonde and built by renowned Custom Shop Master Builder Dennis Galuszka in 2005.
The guitar plays really well and as a result shows some signs of use on the body where the originally "NOS" finish level has stated to show some real life aging. The lacquer on the back of the neck is intact and smooth to the touch, while the original vintage size frets are in excellent condition and looks to have been professionally leveled recently.
Fret ends are nicely rolled, as are the fretboard edges, making the guitar a really comfortable player. Pickguard has one minor crack at the screw hole below the five way selector switch. Comes with original strap, ash tray hang tags and COA.
Original black tolex Fender CS G&G case included, one lock of the case is broken.
