This is a genuine Fender USA Custom Classic Stratocaster body built by Fender Custom Shop in 2006, and sourced from US guitar parts reseller The Stratosphere in Brentwood New Hampshire - https://stratosphereparts.com/
From The Stratosphere –
“We have been helping the world build a better guitar every day now for the past 16 years. We are best known for offering the largest selection of brand name necks & bodies anywhere. Our customers range from working musicians to repair shops to some of the most famous guitar players in the music industry.”
It was bought as new by its one owner in 2012 for a project that never eventuated. It has been kept in its box which displays the imprint of Matt Gibney, founder & owner of The Stratosphere.
It features the slim lines and curvature of the classic L Series Strats of the pre-CBS era. It is finished in a thin black nitrocellulose lacquer which is unmarked and shiny clean.
Weight is 5.2 lbs
Also included is its “modern” Fender two point tremolo bridge with Fender stamped saddles, trem block, springs and plate. Plus 2 x straplock buttons.
The neck pocket is marked "06"
The imprint in the neck pickup cavity reads “ACQ NOS”
The imprint in the middle pickup cavity reads “9240001806”
This hardware package would currently cost approx AUD$1400 plus shipping & duty, so this is a well priced kickoff point for that great custom Strat you may have dreamt about for a while.
