1996 MIJ Fender Limited Edition 50th Anniversary, "The Ventures" Stratocaster with a RARE Transparent Charcoal Burst Finish.
In 1996 Fender honored The Ventures by introducing a line of signature models, designed with the needs of each member in mind. The set consisted of matching Made in Japan Stratocaster, Jazz Bass and Jazzmaster, each featuring a Transparent Charcoal Burst finish and matched headstocks with gold “The Ventures” logos, pearloid pick guards, bound-and-blocked Rosewood fingerboards and gold hardware. The Ventures models were only marketed for a single year and then discontinued, and as such are exceedingly rare, making them sought-after collectors pieces.
This piece is in collector condition, excellent to near MINT condition with the original case and all case candy. It includes a shot of the Fender Ventures Series and the original Ventures with their Fender guitars.
