FENDER USA Custom Shop LTD 62 Stratocaster *Ruby Red 04 of 12 "Trans Red + Maple

Wow! I have had a ton of Strat guitars but this one knocks the ball out the park. Here we have a very early Custom Shop 1 of 12 Ruby Red strat. This one is no4# with a 1995 neck date. A must for John page fans. His work would best be described as PRS private stock's equivalent, because he really did experiment with finish types and was well known for his crazy colour options and matching appointments - very far from boring! for a 25 year old guitar this thing is immaculate, a true under the bed/closet queen which is sure to make any collector very happy. Little is known about the ownership other then the last owner imported her from USA about a decade ago. 

The body is Ash for good tone. The 25.5 inch scale AAA+ Birdseye maple neck features a 9.5 inch Maple fingerboard with 22 frets and Ruby red dot inlays. A trio of red acrylic cover 60's style single coils dish out big tones. Seriously, when's the last time you saw factory red cover pick-ups. The finish is a very cool trans red shade and is set off by an andonized gold pickguard with a matching red headstock. Man, this thing looks cool. Original Custom Shop stamped neck pocket. Original pick-ups and electronics. 

This Strat plays and sounds great. The modern C shape neck is comfortable. The frets are full. The pickups are clear and powerful and great with effects. A cool modern yet retro guitar. Condition wise.close scrutiny may reveal the odd polish swirl but you would be incredibly fussy to have an issue with its condition.Comes in Fender hardshell case with all the paperwork - awaiting Reissued COA from Fender.

This is an outrageously cool and rare instrument. Perhaps one of a kind in this condition and an incredible addition to your collection. I'm a huge Strat fan so this was a cool find for me.
