Overview

The Fender Custom Shop QMT Stratocaster NOS Master Built by Dale Wilson will please any Strat fan fortunate enough to strap it on. Close inspection reveals the remarkable workmanship and attention to detail for which Dale of Fender Custom Shop is known. It's made in an intriguing combination of Strat specs. It has a contoured ash body with a AAA quilted maple top. The neck is made of rosewood, which has an oval "U" back shape. The fingerboard is Indian rosewood with 21 frets, leading to Fender logo tuners. Lipstick pickups and a custom pickguard give this one-off guitar its unique appeal.

Dale Wilson Master Builder
Dale Wilson arrived at Fender in 2003, joined the Custom Shop in 2005 and became a Master Builder in 2011. Building guitars has been a driving passion for the California native since childhood.

œEver since I can remember, Ive always loved guitars, he said. œI didnt dream of being a rock star; I dreamed of building the ultimate guitar. I was equally enthralled with the guitars just as much as I was with the players.

Wilson comes from a long line of expert woodworkers, and the requisite Custom Shop zeal for outstanding craftsmanship has long been part of his DNA. He did repair work and mods in a small guitar shop right out of high school in the late 1980s; subsequently moving on to stints at Dobro and Rickenbacker before arriving at Fender, where he worked on Guild, Gretsch and Benedetto guitars before beginning his apprenticeship with various Custom Shop Master Builders.
