98 Baker Masterbuilt Cherry Burst - Friday Strat #241

Quilted Maple on Book Matched Ash

Fender Masterbuilt Baker Cherry Sunburst


Melodee-Music of Leesburg, VA is listing this maple intense Gene Baker Masterbuild from May '98. Besides the AAA quilt maple top, the flame neck is pretty outrageous! All certs and stamps look in order. This one has 9.5" fat "C" with vintage frets, gold hardware, nitro finish and Texas Special pickups. Tweed case includes orig. case candy and COA. Pearly pickguard adds a nice touch too!

Interestingly the seller indicates no fret wear, and that this hasn't been a "gigging" Strat, but still lets us know there are several finish dings on front and back that aren't visible in the pics. Interesting, right? Possibly this is attributable to the nitro being much more vulnerable than a poly finish. Also, the orig. owner coulda been a bit of a klutz...
