FENDER USA Custom Shop Cunetto 1958 Relic Strat "Candy Apple Red + Maple" (1996)

Here's a killer Custom Shop Strat with awesome looks and tone! Many players dig these earlier Custom Shop models citing better attention to detail and lower production numbers. And yes this ones a relic, coming straight from the Vince Cunetto era and would be of interest to Cunetto fans.

John Page, Vince Cunetto - together they made some of the best relic Stratocasters on the planet. This one is a sweet 1958 relic that plays and sings beautifully. 5 position tone switch and all the original parts. Excellent condition and collector owned. All nicks and wear are original. Please let me know if you would like to see any cavity/Pocket shots - Original back plate included. This one is dated as a 1996 and signed by John Cruz inside.

Made in the USA Custom Shop quality throughout. The 25.5-inch scale maple neck features a 9.5-inch radius Maple fingerboard with 21 frets. Check out the cool Flame figure on this example. A trio of 50's Style single-coils delivers big tone. A vintage style trem and Kluson style tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous Candy Apple Red lacquer set off by Gold hardware and white plastic. A really cool looking Strat.

These Cunetto Strats have a very authentic strat sound. The neck is straight and the action is Low. The frets are virtually free of any wear. The pickups deliver variety of tones. All of the electronics work as they should. This is a solid example. COA and Original Case included. Great Investment opportunity and a chance to own one of the finest guitars ever built.
