Wow! This offering from the Fender Custom Shop is a sight to be seen and heard. Hand-built in Corona, California by the experts of the Custom Shop. This is truly a fantastic piece. The Custom Shop has done a great job with the relic work and equipping it with vintage correct parts and specs. The neck is a 60's "C" shape which is very comfortable and lends itself to great playability. Equipped with hand-wound Custom Shop Texas Special pickups this is a great, straight out of the case, blues machine. Don't miss out on a limited edition instrument.
Hotter than your average Strat pickups, these are perfect for blues, rock, and anything SRV inspired. Made with alnico 5 magnets and enamel-coated magnet wire these pickups have a great midrange bite with crystalline highs and tight bass.
This neck feels amazing! The neck is made of roasted maple, which not only feels great, it sounds great. It adds a unique quality to the tone and helps with sustain. The 9.5 radius is very playable for both chords and bends. The "C" shape is like a handshake with a dear old friend. Be prepared to play for hours on this neck and never get tired of it.
The Custom Shop did an amazing job with this instrument. This is a beautiful example of a refinished 60's Strat. Anytime you see Sunburst peaking out on a refinished guitar you know you have a real player on your hands. You'll spend hours looking at every nick and ding, admiring the craftsmanship.
