30 pieces worldwide - Ours is the only one allocated to Australia...We feel like the Fender Custom Shop Founders Design 'Stelecaster' by Gene Baker is one of the coolest guitars ever made.

When Gene was asked to come up with a guitar to celebrate 30 years of the Fender Custom Shop, his Stelecaster concept was inspired by the early mashups of the Stratocaster and Telecaster from Mike Bump - Gene's former apprentice and now-R&D guru at Fender.

"I just always felt that it belongs at Fender," Gene said when asked about his design, "When you look at the model, just about everything is the Strat and the Tele 50/50 right up the centre line - Mirror images of each other when you look at it. It looks very vintage and very familiar and friendly, although it makes you take a second thinking, 'Whoa, what is that?'"
