The first Guitar Center opened August 1964. To celebrate Guitar Center’s 50th Anniversary in 2014, GC had Fender make a limited run of three hundred and fifty Squier Standard Stratocasters in a GC exclusive Crimson Red Transparent Flamed Maple Top with Gold Hardware. The guitar was released for sale in August 2014 and never reissued. This guitar is in really nice condition with only minor discoloration at the output jack plate and neck plate. I tried to get the best pictures I could of those issues. Other than those two things, the guitars is beautiful. The Gold Tremelo Bar was installed for these pictures only. The tremelo bridge has never been used for vibrato. This Strat also comes with a Fender gig bag. Thanks for taking the time to read this. It really is a cool limited edition guitar.
