Fender Rosewood Tele by the former Senior Master Builder, Yuriy Shishkov
These very rarely come up for sale, and this one was purchased new in 2014 by a professional musician and only used in studio. The condition is simply excellent with no excuses. Mr. Shishkov is no longer with Fender, and as a master builder, this guitar was made by only one person. I consider this Investment Grade, and it’s priced very similar to the original cost in 2014. Is there is a finer example of Yuriy’s work in rosewood?
Surprisingly, it weighs under 9 lbs, and the grain is stunning in real time.
