Vintage Aesthetic:

The super-heavy relic lacquer finish gives this guitar the authentic look and feel of a well-loved instrument that has seen countless stages and performances. Its two-piece select Ash body is expertly roasted to perfection, resulting in a rich, dark color and enhanced sustain.

Exceptional Craftsmanship:

Crafted with precision and attention to detail, the tinted and roasted quartersawn maple neck features a chunky custom large “C” profile, providing players with a comfortable and familiar feel. The flat-lam rosewood fingerboard boasts 21 jumbo (6100) frets, ensuring smooth playability across the entire neck.

Dynamic Tone:

Equipped with hot hand-wound Texas Special pickups, this guitar delivers searing tone that’s perfect for blues, rock, and everything in between. The five-way switching and Strat “1/2 blender” wiring allow players to explore a wide range of tonal options, from sweet and mellow to bold and aggressive.
