Thanks, Walt. I corrected "1910" (now "2010")in my post, in case people wonder. I have difficulty moving from the last millenium.
Fender has I think a standard charge for "masterbuilt" (and also"team-built") guitars. This guitar is what they call "new old stock,", which means it looks brand new. One has to be pay extra to get it scratched up, faded, chipped, and rusty (a "relic")! Another masterbuilder, John Cruz I think, is an expert at relics, and one would use him if a relic were desired. I wanted a guitar that looked like what I couldn't afford in 1960. Also, the format of the shows we like to do - a back-to-the-past show - calls for brand-new looking guitars.
It took over six months from the order to delivery. We worked out the specs of the guitar beforehand, but it was relatively easy in this case as we wanted a Jazzmaster as Bob Bogle might have used. The difference will be the flamed neck.
Here is a close-up of the head. It is a very pretty guitar and plays wonderfully.
I haven't used the guitar on stage yet and have no clips on it being played. It sounds much better than I do!
