2021 MJT VTS Stratocaster with a relic 3-Tone Sunburst finish. This is a brand new fully custom build that was just completed in-house and features a MJT VTS body, MJT Musikraft maple neck, and new Fender Custom Shop relic electronics and pickups, all handwound by Fender's Custom Shop master winders. This Stratocaster is the ultimate in build-quality where every aspect was mastercrafted with the utmost consideration. It features an early 50's style chunky neck. A lot of time was spent meticulously dressing the frets, aging all hardware, and shielding the body cavities. This 100% USA build rivals anything from the Fender Custom Shop. It plays extremely well and sounds out of this world. It weighs just 7.78 pounds. Does not include a case or any accessories.
