A stunning example of modern luthiery from Fender Masterbuilder Chris Fleming.
Crafted by Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder Chris Fleming, this '63 Stratocaster pays tribute to what many feel was the prime year for Strats. From the pickups, hand-wound by the legendary Loretta Diaz, to the Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and hand-selected alder body, this instrument embodies both tradition and Fender's history of innovation.
Becoming a Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder isn't a easy path. Beyond complete mastery of traditional and modern luthiery skills, a builder must have an instinct for perfection and an imagination to see and hear the guitar in the hands of great players. Even experienced luthiers coming to Fender must serve a years-long apprenticeship before they can finally be held worthy of the title "Masterbuilder."
