Russell’s Stratocaster guitar is from the American Deluxe Series made at the Corona Plant (Fender), USA in the Year 2000.
Leo Fender is in the second shot. No CNC machines back then, everything was done by hand. It is amazing to realize that every guitar made that year is now worth a small fortune.
