Very rare chance on a minty vitually new condition and very rare Masterbuilt Fender Master Built 1954 50th Anniversary Strat, built by senior Masterbuilder Mark Kendrick - the certificate says 'In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Fender Strat, the Fender Custom Shop has faithfully recreated a limited release 1954 Stratocaster'. Each guitar is Master Built at Fender's world renowned "dream factory" in Corona, California and features custom reproduction original 1954 pick-ups, original "u" shape maple neck, original finish and body contours plus an accurate reproduction of the original guitar strap as shipped in 1954. True to the original instruments are several other features. Here for the first time since 1954 are the unique knobs, switch tip, pickguard, tremelo cover plate and pick-up covers, that have been retooled and manufactured using the exact formulas and materials. Also included are the original then "patented pending" bridge saddles, which have been replicated even though Fender has long since owned the patents for these parts. Finally rounding out the package is a replica of the form fit case as shipped with the original guitar in 1954-

Master Built by Mark Kendrick,  (also made guitars for the like of Keith Richards) A set of special Custom Shop pick-ups along with the correct 'rounded' pick-up covers - original vintage form fit case with '50th anniversary 1954/2004' decal and the signed certificate are with the guitar.  Without any doubt this is among the best Fender made the last 50 years.
