We are honoured to have in our guitar showroom a prime, completely one-of-a-kind example of Fender's most prestigious instruments.
This guitar came to us by chance at Fender Australia's mid-year bi-annual Custom Shop dealer conference. This guitar was one of five Master Built instruments on display. Upon seeing it, we immediately put our names down for the raffle to purchase it. By luck of the draw, it came into our hands.
The guitar was handbuilt from scratch by Master Builder Greg Fessler, its birthday being 25/03/2019. For some, Greg needs no introduction. If you're not in the loop yet, read through this excerpt on Greg, taken directly from Fender's Custom Shop website:
"Greg Fessler came to the Fender Custom Shop in 1990, working his way up through the ranks as an apprentice. He assisted with the Robben Ford signature line of guitars, eventually becoming the sole builder of those instruments and, later, Ford’s personal builder. Fessler has built one-off Stratocaster and Telecaster models for a host of players, including Joe Bonnamasa, Jeff Healey, Hank Marvin, John Mayer, Rhonda Smith, Neil Schon and Pete Wentz, to name only a few.
Fessler’s remarkable abilities as a Master Builder have earned him accolades from many Fender artists and from discerning customers worldwide. His meticulous attention to detail is exemplified in every instrument he creates, each of which is a perfect example of the intense commitment it takes to earn the title of Master Builder."
