When George Amicay was with Fender Custom Shop he specialized in themes and intricate carving. Stratcollector.com has an interesting profile on Amicay and his work you gotta check out!


This Amicay Strat is currently listed by eBay seller: jessarn02 based in Newport Beach, CA who includes the following description:

"Hand carved and owned by George Amicay, former Master Artisan-Wood Carver at Fender Custom Shop for 10 years. The detailed work took approximately one and half years to carve and complete.

Body: Alder, made from original 1956 steel templates, hand routed. Hand carved in a roots design with an abalone "bug". The "dirt" is a substrate made from rosewood.

Neck: Highly figured rare bird's eye/flame maple. Rosewood fretboard, clay dots with vintage tuners and frets. It is a 1956 shape. Headstock carved with abalone "Fender" logo inlaid.

Accessories: Gold vintage with abalone overlaid Fender single coil pickups. "Brushed" aluminum gold anodized pick guard with three position pick up switch. Also 1956 style. It has black knobs with shell veneer overlay.

Plays and sounds fantastic. The guitar has barely been played. It is from George Amicay's personal collection. There is a very small scratch on the back. "Amicay did it!"

The guitar will come with a "letter of authenticity" by George Amicay."


Pretty cool, eh!
