FENDER USA Masterbuilt Dale Wilson 59 Stratocaster NOS "Oly White + Maple" (2019

Dale Wilson arrived at Fender in 2003, joined the Custom Shop in 2005 and became a Master Builder in 2011. Building guitars has been a driving passion for the California native since childhood. Woodworking ran in the Wilson family, and the requisite Custom Shop zeal for outstanding craftsmanship has long been part of Dale’s DNA. He did repair work and mods in a small guitar shop right out of high school in the late 1980s; subsequently moving on to stints at Dobro and Rickenbacker before arriving at Fender, where he worked on Guild, Gretsch and Benedetto guitars before beginning his apprenticeship with various Custom Shop Master Builders.

He enjoys calling upon his extensive and varied experience as a craftsman to create highly distinctive guitars. More notably, Wilson built five beautiful custom guitars for the January 2011 NAMM Show while still an apprentice and was asked to sign the back of the headstocks, garnering him his Master Builder status.

looking at the condition of the frets and looking for any obvious dings, it is still effectively in the same condition as when I sold it a few years ago. Nevertheless, it has been back on my bench for a new set of 10-46 gauge strings, plus a check-up set-up, so all ready to go with a sensible action, that will respond to a light touch.
