A rare opportunity to buy a Fender CRS 59 (No 27 of 54 in the world.) Shadows 50th Anniversary ltd Edition
To mark the 50th anniversary of The Shadows and the iconic Fender Stratocaster that inspired so many influential guitarists to pick up the instrument, Oasis Musical Instruments Ltd, with the approval of Hank B Marvin and Bruce Welch O.B.E., comissioned Fender's Custom Shop Masterbuilder Greg Fessler to re create that magnificent '59 Stratocaster imported by Cliff Richard for Hank to use. The original guitar is now owned by Bruce Welch O.B.E. (a gift from Cliff in the '70's) and was kindly made available by him in order to ensure complete accuracy.
A Limited Edition Fender USA Custom Shop Masterbuilt Stratocaster produced from the specifications of the original 1959 Stratocaster Cliff Richard imported for Hank Marvin to play with The Shadows in 1959. It was the first Stratocaster known to have been imported into the U.K. That iconic "Flamingo Pink" (sic) guitar is reproduced here in accurate detail for the first, and possibly last, time and is only available as part of The Shadows 50th Anniversary Collector Outfit.
