    Description

    Jon Douglas Aluminum Fender Stratocaster Limited Edition #27/50. In the late '70s, The Fender company commissioned sculptor Jon Douglas (who has sculptures in the Savoy Hotel, Britain's At War Museum, the Sherlock Holmes Museum, and the Winston Churchill Museum), to create a very limited number of bronze and aluminum body Stratocasters, to be sold only in the United Kingdom.

    When all of the initial run of six guitars (except the prototype!) were destroyed by fire, Douglas independently produced a limited edition of 50 guitars, based on the original prototype. It was believed that the majority of the second run were made of cold cast bronze, but a couple of them were made in aluminum (with red rhinestones), and this is one of those incredibly rare instruments! The guitar has a 1974 Stratocaster maple neck, with a 21 fret, rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, a tremolo bridge, and all of the electrics and hardware to compliment the metal cast body. In Excellent condition with light play wear. Hardcase included.
