A Custom Shop variation of Fender's classic Stratocaster line, this guitar is much more aggressive than its single coil brethren.  Less than 6 months old, this guitar is a consignment from a local customer who simply didn't "bond" with the instrument.  We've looked it over head to tail, and cannot find any scratches, dings or scuffs; the guitar is literally "new" condition.  Classic Strat comfort, with a look and sound designed to shake you out of that comfort zone. Comes with a custom case that is in just as good of condition!  
What we love about this guitar is that is still feels like a classic Strat, but on steroids!!  When we plugged it into our Marshall Jubilee, it was a monster....  The EMG active pickups are hot and nasty, perfect for recreating the sounds of barbed wire strangling a unicorn. The matte black color really grew on us, and we like the fact that the finish does not "smudge" with fingerprints like some less expensive guitars in the same color. This guitar disappears into the darkness and beckons you to do the same.

EMG 60s @ Neck - Has boosted mid range that gives a nice thick tone on the low end

EMG 81s @ Bridge - Gives it an intense tone, very aggressive highs that cut through any mix
