This has been my personal guitar for a few years now.  I'm letting it go to fund the restoration of a couple older pieces I've acquired.  I'm not wild about selling it, but that's the way it goes, even for us in the business! 

I sorted this guitar out of a purchase of over 20 Fender Custom Shop and Masterbuilt Teles and Strats.  It had the best neck and overall playability.  It also has the look, which isn't my first criteria for a guitar, but it certainly never hurts.

The guitar is 100% original and includes the COA and other goodies that it left Fender with back in 2016.  The COA is unfortunately not included - the one I had in the case is from another guitar and the cert for this guitar never surfaced.

The back of the neck is just perfect.  There is a nice rolled edge that factually compared very well to a '63 Strat I had in the inventory at the time I purchased this one.

Fret wear is minimal.  I didn't play it a ton, and the customer I bought it from had over 20 guitars at the time, so he didn't play it a lot either.  

Do me a favor and grab this quickly so I don't change my mind!
