HUDSON'S NAMM GUITARS is proud to offer for the first time the 2020 Fender NAMM Display Prestige Masterbult Showstopper --- The NOS "Saleen Candy Apple Red Stratocaster 1" built by Ron Thorn.  Brand New!   The one and only 2020 NAMM Showstopper displayed at the Fender booth !!! 

Serious buyers are welcome to Call/Text us 914-490-4369.  Offers considered.

Each year, Fender Showcases a couple of dozen special masterbuilt creations for display at the show.  Fender doesn't stop there: At NAMM Fender also Showcases a dozen over the top special "Prestige" masterbuilt creations for display at the show.  At the 2020 NAMM, Fender presented the Ron Thorn Prestige masterbuilt Saleen 1 Stratocaster, of all the displays that show your looking at the guitar that created the most enthusiasm by all attendees.

We're presenting you with a once in a life time opportunity to own the next to impossible chance to own the Saleen 1 NAMM showstopper; the absolute best of the best.  These showstoppers hit the market perhaps one in every five to ten years as they are pre allocated to certain privileged insiders close to Fender.


ONE:  Unique, Unique, Unique -  Premier Masterbuilder Ron Thorn collaborated with Saleen Automotive to create the one off Saleen 1 Stratocaster.  Just like the Saleen 1 performance automobile the Saleen 1 Stratocaster is a sleek design carbon fiber body.  The unique carbon body shape unlike any other strat  is both hollow and lightweight.  Ron loved the clean look of his master Saleen 1.  With this in mind Ron choose not to distort it's clean looks with conventional on-board volume and tone pots.  Ron went the extra mile and put the pots on the included external three pedal pedalboard (vol., tone and wah)  WOW!

TWO:  This baby is a tone master.  We're not talking about some wimpy fad guitar.  Thanks to its innovative carbon fiber performance driven body The Saleen 1 is the beast of all the beasty axes out there.  Dial it down and you discover the sweetest warm tones you could've never imagined. Lastly, it doesn't end there; take the Sallen 1 Stratocaster for a ride and you're sure to freak out with tones never before discovered!

THREE:  INVESTMENT - It kinda goes without saying.  Our price might seem high, actually it's a bargain.  The Saleen 1 2020 NAMM showstopper has unpresented notoriety.  Fender produced a video.  All the guitar mags featured the Saleen. The Saleen is the Fender 2022 January calendar guitar (calendar included).  Fender showcased the Saleen at their 2020 NAMM booth (see photo).  Knowing the Saleen 1 Stat's pedigree we'd expect the guitars value to grow 3-5 times in a few short years; a terrific investment that should be seriously considered by all those interested.  

FINALLY:  The Saleen 1 statocaster is freaking GORGEOUS, MAGNIFICENT and BREATHTAKING !!! So why not go for it; the envoy of players, collectors, and the world. 

The Fender Custom Shop has a long history of collaborating with car manufacturers, the newest partnership is with Saleen Automotive.

Master builder Ron Thorn, Acclaimed for building and loving fast high-performance cars, Ron modeled the sleek design high performance Saleen 1 Stratocaster guitar based on similarities to the Saleen 1 super sports car.

This supercharged guitar is finished in striking Saleen Candy Apple Red.  Its hand-laid carbon-fiber body is hollow for super-light weight, with a roasted alder center block and a hand carved maple top. Its roasted maple neck is adorned with a carbon fiber fingerboard topped by a matching carbon fiber headstock. The Saleen1 strat is powered by a high output TV Jones Power 'Tron Plus bridge pick up and a custom "6 Stack" bridge with a hand-made Strat 1 tailpiece.  Further, a custom Strat 1 pedalboard enhances the player's driving experience with custom volume, tone and wah-wah controls.  CUSTOM, CUSTOM and more CUSTOM.  WOW!!!  

"The Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 1 takes aesthetic and functional cues from Saleen's latest supercar!"

"NAMM 2020 was all about exciting new gear, and Fender Custom Shop played a huge part in that experience for us. Their latest partnership with Saleen Automotive led to a particularly unique creation from the guitar manufacturer. Acclaimed for building high-performance guitars even before his arrival at Fender, master builder Ron Thorn has always loved fast cars. Struck by the similarities in sleek design and high-performance between the Fender Stratocaster guitar and the Saleen 1 super sports car, Thorn conceived of a one-of-a-kind Stratocaster combining elements of both. The result is the Stratocaster 1. Watch the video from Fender Custom Shop below for a more in-dept look! "
