FENDER USA Stratocaster LTD MOTO Custom Shop "Ruby Red + Maple" (1995)
Very rare Fender Custom Shop set from 1995. “Moto” stands for “Mother of Toilet Seat”, and refers to the unique pearloid finish. Only 150 sets like this were made. In addition, some suggest these were designed by masterbuilder by Fred-Stuart. Includes hard-case and candy but no COA.
You are looking at a 1995 Fender Stratocaster Custom Shop Red Moto photo-type with a birds-eye maple neck! This is an extra-special piece, as it is 1 of only 15 built in this colour. This doesn't come with a COA as mentioned above, however for further validation i have confirmation from fender via email which i shall print off and include with the sale. She’s 100% original and ready to rock your world!
Its body is simply stunning having gobs of beautiful pearled in fabulous shape, its matching Moto pickgard set it off like no other Strat on Earth, its figured Maple neck has no play time on it & has that Custom Shop appearance that you’d be proud of. These finishes were outsourced by Fender but eventually become too expensive to mass produce.
The body is made of Select Ash for great warm tone. The 25.5 inch scale Birds-eye maple neck features an Maple fingerboard with 21 frets. A trio of Custom shop Texas specials accompany a 5 way switch and a Fender 2 point trem tfor rock solid performance. Top notch quality on a great feeling and sounding guitar!
The action is low, the frets are still as new, and the neck is straight. The CS pickups deliver a variety of tones. A Killer guitar. Collector owned, it has seen little playtime since 1995 when imported from the states. It shows No noticeable playwear. No marks/dents/impressions, very clean indeed. Perhaps the nicest example you are likely to find for this series. Comes in its original Old school G&G Fender hard shell case with a pile of candy.
