Description

Here’s a beautiful example of a new, ex-display Fender Custom Shop guitar. This is a very cool Strat with a Hendrix-y vibe thanks to its faded and aged Olympic white finish and large headstock. A pristine Fender Custom Shop case, complete with all the paperwork and candy, is included. The body of the guitar is resonant light weight alder (the whole guitar weighs 7 lb 11oz) which has a wonderful bright and open acoustic character – it sounds great even before you plug it in. The 4-bolt rift-sawn maple neck has a comfortably full ’69 U shape profile and 6105 medium jumbo frets. The neck is finished in period correct thin urethane, with a silky played-in feel (not varnish removed like some relic Fenders). The pickups are Custom Shop hand-wound – ’69s in the neck and middle and slightly hotter Texas Special in the bridge (with the tone control wired-in when you want to tame it!).  All the classic Strat tones are here – Hendrix, Mayer, SRV etc – even if you don’t have their virtuosity, this guitar provides the right tones!  A late 60’s authentic Fender hardcase is included along with Custom Shop certificate and all the case candy. This is a rare opportunity to pick up a  brilliant new Custom Shop Strat for the price of a used one.
