Crafted for Connoisseurs: A Closer Look at the Strat

This exceptional instrument embodies the “Golden Era” allure with the ease of a modern Fender, perfect for the discerning guitarist seeking a fusion of vintage appeal and cutting-edge playability. Boasting handpicked tonewoods, premium hardware, and an artful blend of colours, this guitar is as much a feast for the senses as it is a tool of melodic expression.

Balanced Tone & Resonant Harmony: Alder & Maple Construction

At the heart of this Stratocaster’s natural voice lies an Alder body, a beloved Fender tonewood since 1956. Known for its balanced, resonant tone, superb upper-mid definition, and sustained singing resonance, Alder brings together the finest of acoustic properties.

This is paired with a 5/4 Quarter Sawn Maple neck, lending a crisp, snappy edge to the overall tone. Topping off the neck is a premium AAA Rosewood fretboard, offering a smooth, slick feel under the fingers and a gorgeous dark shade.

Modern Innovation Meets Vintage Charm: Electrifying Tone

Unleashing this Stratocaster’s articulate tone are its handwound Fat '60s pickups, with a hum-cancelling RWRP middle configuration. These are controlled through the Vintage Modified Wiring #2, which lets you warm up the bridge pickup with a dedicated tone knob. Whether you’re searching for sparkling cleans or crave the growl of overdrive, this Stratocaster grants you full command over your tonal palette.

Superior Hardware: From Frets to Finish

A striking Aged Sonic Blue finish drapes the Super Heavy Relic body, revealing the Chocolate 3-Tone Sunburst underneath in a stunning display of seasoned craftsmanship.

This Custom Shop Stratocaster’s visual appeal is complemented by an impeccable hardware setup - a vintage-style hardtail Stratocaster bridge and Fender logo tuners, ensuring top-tier tuning stability and precise intonation. With Jumbo 6100 frets on a 9.5" radius fretboard, navigating this Strat’s neck and executing expressive string bends is a seamless experience.
