1999 Fender Masterbuilt Custom Shop Jaguar Stratocaster #12 of 25 produced to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Jaguar’s world-famous XK engine. The burl walnut used to craft the fingerboard and pickguard of this guitar was sourced from the same Jaguar supplier of the dashboard interiors. The leather used to craft the white gig bag was also sourced from the same supplier that provides the leather for Jaguar’s upholstery, Connolly, England. The instrument, built by master luthier Stephen Stern, is presented in excellent condition - however prospective buyers should note that the hardware is slightly worn, and the gold tremolo arm has reacted with the guitar lead while stored in the pouch. The case still contains the COA, bag straps and hook, strap, owner’s manual, polish cloth, case key and cable.
This guitar really is a celebration of the iconic Jaguar XK-50 and the Fender Stratocaster all in one, it's glorious. We would like to think the guitar will be played and enjoyed as it sounds amazing, when driven slowly, this Stratocaster sounds articulate and clean through the country lanes and when plugged and driven with intent, the guitar growls and purrs with enthusiasm. Collectors, players, pop rockers and rollers with instantly fall under the spell of this superb wild cat. Superb.
