The fender custom shop mary kaye tribute stratocaster is a gorgeous master-built guitar that features a premium ash body complemented by a beautiful one-piece maple neck and elegant gold hardware. the thin white blonde nitrocellulose lacquer finish has been given the closet classic treatment meaning; it has been built as if it was bought new in its respective year, played maybe a few times a year and then put carefully away. it has a few small dings, a mildly checked finish, lightly oxidized hardware and aged plastic parts. as an added feature, the mary kaye tribute stratocaster is fitted with a set of custom pickups that have been individually hand-wound by fender's pickup winding icon, abigail ybarra. each guitar will come with a limited edition neckplate and a special certificate signed by mary kaye herself. this limited edition masterpiece also includes a dvd interview with mary kaye, a limited edition hard-shell case.
