Fender / Fender Custom Shop Playboy 40th Anniversary Strat New Old Stock / 1994 / Guitar
New Old Stock, yes, this exceptional instrument has never been offered for sale until now and comes directly from the stock of the previous Swiss Fender distributions. How cool about that ?? Wonderful Fender Stratocaster 40th Anniversary Playboy limited to 175 instruments in 1994 to commemorate the 40 years of the famous Playboy magazine.
The even more exceptional aspect of this rare Fender Custom Shop Playboy 40th Anniversary Strat is to have been kept new by the former Swiss distribution of Fender for 26 years … This guitar has never been sold, and is offered for sale for the first time. A real New Old Stock, with all the accessories, all the documents and especially the original shipping box. Extremely rare therefore as new condition, never sold, probably not even exhibited in the Swiss distribution's building. During the transfer of Fender distribution in 2002 and so that the brand does not search the entire Fender stock which was then in Switzerland, this instrument was taken out of the lists and hidden.
In terms of condition, we are talking about New Old Stock, but to be quite picky about the condition, there is a tiny, almost invisible dent on the front face of the pickguard towards the last two screws near the lower cutaway . Minimal or even almost invisible traces of polish, towards the edges are only visible depending on how you hold the guitar in the light or not. In short, never played, real New Old Stock.
This super rare guitar comes in an absolutely gorgeous red leather gig bag and had been kept at the previous Fender Swiss distributions in an SKB hard case specifically designed for this guitar for its entire life. The original box is even delivered with it.
