Fender / Masterbuilt LTD Builder Select Yuriy Shishkov 1964 Stratocaster / 2006 / Olympic White / Guitar
Probably the most special contemporary Strat we’ve ever come across, this Custom Shop is an LTD (limited), Fender’s most selective collection. Only 100 were made, all by the prestigious masterbuilder Yuriy Shishkov. It is a reproduction of a 1964 L Series, transition-era. In an amazing Closet Classic finish (the checking is breathtaking, as well as the aged Olympic White and light relic process of the body), with a sound that would defy many original 64’s (no, we’re not exaggerating).
Yuriy Shishkov is considered the best masterbuilder in Fender, and this is definitely some of his best work.
In fantastic condition, this guitar radiates mojo all over! It is a nearly impossible to find guitar, and even less at this price. Includes OHSC, COA, tremolo arm and back tremolo cover.

Guitar Giraffe, Spain
In the last few years, online sale for musical instruments has experienced an amazing growth, but has passed right through the pre-owned market (that is, in Spain), limiting it to specialised forums and private owners. This is why Guitar Giraffe was born, the first physical and online second hand guitar and amp store (we like to call it "pre-owned", since we see a big difference between both terms), with a clear commitment of giving new options to guitarists locally and worldwide. Pre-owned guitar stores, so common in UK and USA, were practically nonexistent in Spain. We’ve wanted to fill that empty space by becoming the first physical and online store in our country focused on pre-owned guitars and amps.
