    I'd love to play one just to see what it is like, but there is NO WAY I would ever pay that much for it. If I had that much money to burn I'd buy some real Pre CBS hardware.

    #1 Tribute model. Isn't that an oxymoron?

    Well to be fair, we’re not the target clientele.

    Not even if he had actually played it. I saw a EVH Frankenstrat on ebay last week. They were asking 37k for it. Couple days later I got a email saying make an offer, I'm like yeah right.

    It's GC. The hollywood GC no less, which I think is their mothership. They have their image to think about.

    I went inthere once in the 80's. Bunch of guys, apparently the sales staff; big hair, skin tight jeans, preening in the reflection from the windows...
    The smell of testosterone and hairspray drove me back out the door almost instantly.

    IIRC this was a run of 100 guitars. All were priced the same around $50K... 17 years ago!

    Yeah, I just checked... 100 guitars.
    "In November 2003, the Fender Custom Shop announced a limited run of 100 #1 tribute Stratocasters. They debuted at the NAMM Show in Anaheim on January 15, 2004. The original #1 was thoroughly examined and measured for the reproduction. The #1 tribute Stratocasters were constructed by master builder John Cruz, who made all of the 100 replicas."
