Fender Custom Shop / Mary Kaye Cunetto / 1996 / Guitar For Sale
This is an early run (1996) Fender Cunetto Mary Kaye Relic stratocaster nr 0197. Based on a '56 Mary Kaye stratocaster. Handcrafted in the Fender Custom Shop in 1996 with the engraved Custom Shop logo on the back of the headstock and relicing by Master Vince Cunetto. This guitar was done in a Fender Custom Shop that meant ''Custom''. Not like what the Custom shop machines out today.
When I played her, I was instantly reminded just how good these Cunetto era relics looked, played, and sounded. This one sounds especially good with a very clear bell like sound that you can feel in your lap when played sitting down. It has really great tone plugged and unplugged - which is very important. The flamed neck on this strat is really nice and the figuring in the wood is absolutely beautiful due to the thin skin vintage blonde paint - also an important factor to this guitars overall superb tone and bueatiful aged golden hardware.
The limited number of relics built in Vince Cunetto’s reign are already very highly collectable and just seem to sound better than the new Custom Shop guitars. This one certainly sounds better than newer masterbuilt guitars I have played.
Comes with the central pocket tweed case.
