Fender Custom '59 Stratocaster 2001 Black Matching Headstock Custom Shop NOS

No sales tax for customers outside California.

There are a bunch of Strats in the shop right now, but this 2001 '59 Custom Stratocaster keeps drawing my eye with that black body and headstock coupled with the figured maple neck and fretboard.  It is a very cool look! 

The guitar is a great player as well.  The frets look nearly new and the setup is perfect.

This Strat was part of a large collection we acquired from the original owner.  Having been part of a collection of over 200 guitars, it was played very little, if at all.  It was appropriately stored and is in showroom condition with no issues, repairs, or changes.  The truss rod has room for future neck relief adjustment.

The original purchase receipt, certificate of authenticity and other paperwork is included.  The black case seems incorrect for a '59 reissue, but it is a nice Fender case.
