If Wildwood 10 Strats are hot right now, then the Cruz models are completely on fire! Here is your chance to grab a sweet one!
If you're looking at this guitar, you likely know what it is, so here is a concise description, sans superlatives. Wildwood is a dealer that moves a ton of instruments. As such, they have pull with manufacturers. The Wildwood 10 is born under that premise. Wildwood asked Fender to make guitars that they knew people were looking for - vintage looks, feel and tone, and in the case of this series, a 10" radius. The 10" radius is a bit flatter than the usual Custom Shop 9.5" radius, and it is preferred by many. Beyond this, Wildwood requires their guitars to be light in weight and they seem to get preference for great woods.
John Cruz is regarded as one of the best Fender Custom Shop builders, and you can see what the market feels about him when you look at what his guitars are fetching. You can also feel it when you play the instruments that crossed his bench.
This guitar is all original and comes with all the paperwork that came with it from the factory, though we did obtain the shop traveler form via email from Fender customer support. There is a tag from Wildwood in there as well, their final inspection report. The original receipt is included as well. The only thing that appears to be missing from the original case candy package is the guitar cable.
