    The beauty of "special" is it is totally in the eyes of the beholder. If it works for you do it. That's all that matters.

    The tonal qualities of this instrument is/are classic long ago, solid Fender 10/10..........

    The crazing to the Butterscotch surfacing is unbelievable [it looks 1000 years old] .....but I guess paint technology now allows this...however I do think the degree of road wear aging is a little over the top.......the wear of the back of the arm is disfunctional........no amount of player contact in 1000 years could ever create such a uniform raw surface...0.3/10

    Enjoy this guitar .....brilliant............[9.97/10]

    I love the guitar but hate all the Custom Shop crap on it.

    I'm weird.

    I have a few of them CS '51s NOCASTERS and a '52 Tele and they are just magic..... clearly you need a good amp and a being a good musician puts the goodies together. I have two out of the three requirements.. :(
