Here’s a very classy “New Old Stock” Custom Shop Strat – 10 years old but in immaculate condition. Produced in 2009 as a one-off guitar made to Coda Music’s specification, this ’69 Stratocaster features an alder body with a flawless urethane Vintage White finish. The neck and fretboard are from solid AA flamed maple with 21 medium jumbo frets which are free of any fret wear. The neck itself has a full ’69 U profile and is finished in light tint nitro cellulose lacquer – glossy but not too glossy, it has a beautiful feel with none of the stickiness you sometimes experience with gloss finish necks. It has a large headstock giving this Strat a cool late sixties/seventies Hendrix-y vibe. Hardware includes an American Vintage bridge assembly and Schaller F-stamped tuners. The pickups are Abigail Ybarra handwound ’69s with the usual Strat control configuration – 5-way selector, single volume, tone controls for neck and middle pickups (with the bridge pickup wired into the middle tone pot for extra control). Soundwise, you won’t fail to be impressed by this guitar – all the warm clear and full Strat tones are here, and the Abby pickups can drive your amp beautifully into bluesy distortion, all very controllable with the volume control. The guitar comes with its original black Fender hardcase, paper work and case candy.
