    I received this custom-built Fender Corona guitar in mid-November, 2014. It is as new. She is perfect with no wear anywhere on her. This isn't a production guitar; it's a custom-made special order Fender guitar handbuilt or assembled in Corona, CA by one guy. The neckplate is engraved with my name but I'll swap it out with a blank one before I send it. One thing's for sure, this is the only one in the world like it. This is NOT a "Custom Shop" guitar, although most of it was done in the custom shop and it has a bunch of custom shop fittings, equipment and design services. I want $2000 for her plus shipping.

    Here's what she's got:

    160 year old barnwood pine, complete with knotholes. Nitrocellulose Lacquer
    Maple Neck (probably a C shape)
    Black face and side dots
    Nut width: 1.650" (42mm)
    Vintage chrome tuners
    Mint green 3-ply pickguard beveled at a 45 degree angle
    Hardware: chrome
    Strap-loks
    Jazzmaster bridge (required for the)
    Bigsby B5 tremelo (w/ Vibromate spoiler. Makes restringing a breeze)
    Nocaster Single Coil bridge pup and Twisted Tele at the neck
    Les Paul input plate (electrosocket)
    Controls: Volume, Tone, 4-way switch
    Knurled knobs
    All the case candy that came with her in a used Fender HSC
