Fender Custom Shop Founders Design Project

To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Custom Shop, Fender has brought eight of their original Master Builders to “let their imaginations run loose and design the ultimate guitars”.

The guitars will be released monthly and each will be limited to 30 pieces world-wide. Expect high premiums for such works of art. That J.W. Black Strat is pure Stratheaven.
