Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster Custom Built by Masterbuilder Art Esparza 1998 – Aged Olympic White

$ 5250.00

This is a very special Strat as the serial number (AE065) shows. It is a 1998 custom build by Masterbuilder Art Esparza. The electronics feature the MDX mid-boost circuit with TBX tone control (the Clapton configuration). The guitar came with Gold Lace Sensor pickups but now Seymour Duncan Antiquities are installed. The buyer will receive both sets of pickups. The neck is gorgeous flamed maple, the body is ash. Weight is 7.5 lbs and this thing just resonates. There are a few tiny dings and one spot on the back where the paint flecked off (see photos) but otherwise is in excellent condition.

Other Esparza masterbuilds go for $8000 and up, so this is a deal.
