This 2007 Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster Pro guitar has belonged to one of our employees since being purchased new from us. It has seen a lot of stages and studios and many a mod over the years. It is currently loaded with a set if Split Blade Fralin Pickups that offer noise free operation with the tone of single coils. The Fralin pickup blender mod currently occupies the middle tone control.
It also has Glendale Brass Saddles and and FU Tone Brass Block and trem claw system which help the guitar sound super sweet and chimey. A short tremolo arm has also been added to the mix, just ANOTHER nod to the David Gilmour Strat... obviously! The red trem springs are also from FU tone and help cut down on that ringy Strat thing, especially noticeable in high gain scenarios.
The guitar had a midi pickup installed on it at one point and the Roland Midi pickup jack is still present on the side of the guitar. The guitar came with an LSR roller nut which was removed for a Bone Nut cut here at The Music Gallery. The original tuners were swapped for a set of TonePros Kluson Style Repro's. The bridge pickup is at a reverse angle, inspired by the Hendrix thang, it takes a little sting off the high strings and adds a little snap to the bass side. The inside of the body needed to be routed to accommodate it.
The neck is straight, the truss rod is functioning properly and the frets do show some signs of wear but still have plenty of life. Started as a Closet Classic, most definitely a Relic now with plenty of life left in her!
