Limited Edition Shelby Strats Guitar

Recommended Posts

Everyone,

 

I just got word that Fender has shipped all 100 out to dealers.

Unfortunately, that means I can't get them for you - I'm so sorry!!!!

 

They should be in the market for $1299 or so. Since a regular Amer Std Strat is only slightly less than that (with no Shelby coolness), I think it's a cool thing to buy, best of luck to you all.

 

This sucks.. I wanted to be able to hook you all up! cry.gif

These Strats will be something nice for the Shelby aficionados... I have one of the black SGT ones (Mexican), and this one promises to be a far nicer instrument. PLUS the signature!

 

As for the Hot Rod Gibsons being mentioned here... Those are GREAT Les Pauls, BTW... Red only, I think. It was a collaboration with Hot Rod Magazine.

The pickup covers are blued like a heated exhaust pipe, lots of other nice details... really cool guitars. Played and sounded fabulous, as well.

 

If anyone wants 'em, PM me... I'll take a look around and find one for you.

Ha... Silver Blueburst Robot First Run... that's a great memory for me - I sold 31 of those, they were killer.

I have #1002, my birthday's October 2nd, and the GC Manager who had it let me have it.

 

They are available used, a wide range of prices out there, depending on condition.

If you have any charger/power adapter issues, PM me, I think I still have spares.

 

As for the Shelby Legacy Strat, I still feel horrible. Sorry, guys.

I'm out because it's not what was originally presented by Sharon, but, I did see one on Amazon for the $1299 asking price and free shipping. Maybe someone here that really wants it can get it.

I'm bringing both of mine along with me to Granbury to see if I can have Carroll sign them there.

 

A year ago I bought one of the Shelby GT Mexican strats and this year I brought it to OSHKOSH to have Carroll sign that one but it didn't work to my favor as he got sick and couldn't sign anything for anyone that had there car in Mustang Car show.

 

I'll try agian in Granbury if it doesn't happen o'well at least the guitars will have a little road cruize and cool story to them.

Yes please let us know what the story is? I bet it had to do with Fender stating that they had to sell them to guitar stores.

Anyone who HASN'T gotten on my list, PM me with your email address and contact info, I'll reach out to you when they arrive...

thanks JER although i didnt get back to this forum soon enough to get higher on your list for this guitar, thank you for getting a few of these for team shelby members who what i was led to believe from sharon were the original intended buyers the quitar was being produced for Sharon last response in this forum which she started was that she didnt have enouhg people on the list and maybe next year..She never responded to anymore questions on this forum regarding the guitar yet obvously the guitar was produced why then dd they not get enough guitars for the members on the list if the guitar had been produced?or some response as how those team shelby members on the lst who wanted one could get one?if the quitar was produced SHE said maybe next year why would they make them next year?how many members were on the list?ts all to wishy washy for me

I know that Sharon introduced the idea to us about the guitar and I am sure they had plans to have each one numbered and signed by Carroll but its probally some corporate White Collar fuddy duddy at Fender that insisted that they had to be sold to guitar stores. The deal went through but obviously there were some hiccups along the way I still bought the guitar because its an AMERICAN STRAT and you can actually play it plus it is limited to 100 and is really frickin cool. If you have a little extra cash burning a hole in your pocket it is a good investment. I am 99% sure the value will never go below the $1,300 price tag
