She was born just recently in February of 2021 and is in perfect unplayed relic condition with no actual play wear to report. I’m not going into details about nicks and dings, since this is obviously a heavy relic, so the cosmetic wear on this guitar was all done intentionally and artfully by Fender. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets are perfect, with their entire life ahead of them… and the sound is sweet! Also included is the original Fender Custom Shop hard shell case, the case candy, leather strap, ash tray bridge cover, and the leather portfolio, which houses the custom shop floor traveler and the certificate, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be STOKED!!
