Limited Edition Shelby Strats Guitar

Recommended Posts

Here are some New Guitars that we are thinking about making. I would like to know how many people would be interested in this guitar. We will be pre-selling these. There will only be 100 made and all will be singed by Carroll Shelby with a special plaque on the back.

 

These Guitars will be 1,299 for those that are on that list and 1,399 after that.

 

I will be keeping a list of people that are interested in these guitars and once we get enough people interested I will place the order.

 

If you are interested please e-mail me at Sharone@shelbyautos.com

Guitar collectors will want to know if it is a Mexican Fender or Made in The USA..........there is a huge difference in quality.

 

+1

For that price we need the full guitar specs. Just like buying a Shelby.

 

Is the signature real and where will it be signed?

+1 to what you said, looks like made in USA on the headstock in the pic, but hard to see.

There will be a numbered plaque that goes on the back of every Guitar with the number and Carroll signature it will be real.

I guess these are not made to really play. The sig would be rubbed off signed on the back.

Man, I guess I waited too long. A minute ago they were only $12.99. :headscratch:

I guess being made in the USA is the reason for the cost increase? :hysterical:

I was thinking the same, but we could put a clear coat on to protect the sig.

Are these made at the custom shop in California?

 

I bought one of the SGT guitars and was not impressed that is was made in Mexico. I will buy this if it is much higher qualitity than the SGT guitar. Can you describe differences from these than from the SGT guitars?

American Standard Stratocaster® Limited Edition (100 units) Shelby® Legacy Guitar. Made in America.

 

 

 

Today’s new American Standard Stratocaster® guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors mindful of player needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, yet remaining completely true to the elements and spirit that made these instruments legendary in the first place. They are beauties to behold in sound, look and feel with hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups and staggered tuning machines for playability, tone and stability guaranteed to last a lifetime. So make your own history with the new American Standard!

 

 

 

Several new features include:

 

A new bridge with improved bent-steel saddles and a copper-infused high-mass block for increased resonance and sustain.

A new neck treatment—tinted for a richer presentation, with the maple or rosewood fingerboard buffed to a high gloss. The back of the neck still has that silky satin finish.

A thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance.

Yes thanks for all the details. Yep after looking at my SGT guitar and comparing it to this American Strat there is a huge difference between the two, yes please put me on the list to buy one.

 

Anybody want a SGT guitar for $1000.00? or Sharon do you take tradins?
