Fender Custom Shop Chrome Plated Aluminum Stratocaster made in early 1993 built by John Page. This guitar is one of the earliest examples known of the aluminum bodied Fender Stratocasters which were first introduced at NAMM in 1993 and were later produced and sold in limited quantities in 1994. This particular example has a neck date of Jan 8th 1993 along with a correlating 1993 neck-plate serial number as well as pots that date to 1992. Most of the documented models that were made outside of the NAMM convention were produced with black painted headstocks in 1994. All of the key features, parts and components appear to be identical other than the headstock paint.

The guitar itself is a fully aluminum body that is chambered with chrome plating, a maple neck and an ebony fingerboard. The original Fender single coil pickups with original pots, knobs, and 5-way pickup selector switch are all in perfect working order. The black anodized Fender Custom Shop pick-guard really stands out and looks awesome on the chrome plated body.

This guitar is in very good condition, it was extremely difficult to photograph due to reflections and glares, but the guitar has some scratches and belt buckle rash. (See Pics)

Freshly re-strung with 9-42 gauge strings and setup in standard tuning, this guitar plays great. This is a must have for your collection and at a killer price because there is some play wear. Includes a Period correct Fender hardshell case.
