This is a very unique guitar. There's a very interesting history of this guitar. As the story goes, it was built at the Custom Shop by master builder and manager, John Page. It was to be presented to Jesse Valenzuela from Gin Blossom. The group was scheduled to perform at a nationally televised concert in Tempe, AZ in November of 1996. It was completed at the end of October and shipped to a Fender dealer in Scottsdale who put it on display till it was time to present it to Valenzuela. You can imagine the rest of the story. A vacationing physician from Minnesota just happened to frequent the Fender dealer whenever he was in town. The doctor also suffered from a severe case of Guitar Acquisition Syndrome (this was before it was a recognized disease). When he entered the store it was all over. He made the dealer an offer he could not refuse. The dealer quickly called the Custom Shop and after some negotiation Page agreed to send another Custom Shop guitar for Valenzuela.
