Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster Limited El Diablo Heavy Relic 2017

Skonto Price


One of the few custom shop guitars that I would rank at masterbuilt level. It’s incredible how accurate and realistic this relic came out. It reminds me a lot of the John Cruz relics, where one of his guitars usually reaches 10 grants due to his accuracy in creating authetic relics. This is really one of a kind. Once you hold it in your hands and play it, you will never be able to get rid of it! Besides the incredible, eye-catching look, it sounds very very interesting. Hard to describe, but if someone put a gun to my head, I’d say it’s a good mix of 50’s pickup clarity and the 60’s hotness.

It was played very rarely and is in a very good condition. Frets show only little wear. I would say a solid 9/10.
