FENDER USA Custom Shop Stratocaster Deluxe NOS "Daphne Blue + Rosewood" (2013)
Fender has got its manufacturing quality down to a fine art these days and so it's no surprise to find flawless construction, perfect fit and finish of all components, and a general feeling that care has gone into every last detail on this guitar. Most of you will enjoy the Custom Deluxe's lightly-figured maple neck, the aforementioned dark 'board with 'clay'-style dot markers and the modern script headstock logo. When a guitar looks this good you just want to pick it up and play. I do like the two-point floating tremolo on this. whist it has been around for some years and has proved a hassle-free successor to Leo's original it does deliver and something that stands out. Plenty of twang and sustain and its usability goes without saying. The pick-ups are also spectacular.
Condition: The Blue Beauty!! not just a looker i may add! Simple yet she shines. I cannot find a mark of this guitar, 8 years old and I doubt she has even been taken out the case more then a handful of times. No surface swirling, no dings, headstock untouched and frets like new. The colour is bright and the sound is sweet and fierce. Fully loaded with case candy and certificate, in a plush custom shop case. The pearly tuners and mother of pearl dots finish this guitar of perfectly. After a virtually untouched strat with some killer pick-ups. This blue beauty is for you.
