This Custom Shop Fender Stratocaster plays and sounds out of this world. The neck profile is that of a late '59/early '60 carve with plenty of chunk which feels amazing and very easy to play. The 1960 hand wound pickups have a bell like quality and sound incredible through a clean or overdriven amp. The guitar is extremely resonant unplugged and vibrates against your body when strummed. The six point pivot tremolo is set up in a floating manner and works and stays in tune very well. The distressed finish has been done extremely well and looks great with the small flake Sparkle White finish. This Strat comes with all paperwork including the COA and the build sheet. This is a fantastic Custom Shop Stratocaster with a unique finish and killer vibe.
