This Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Stratocaster Relic was built Jason Smith and was done so Masterfully! It is an amazing guitar on all levels but let's start with the obvious stuff. The Faded Fiesta Red is a sweet color! A step towards Salmon pink, the Faded Fiesta really takes the edge off, making it a little more pastel in appearance. It's aged immaculately as well. Not a super heavy relic but aged enough to be loaded with mojo and vibe. A 2 piece Alder body helps this guitar weigh in at a perfect 7 lbs 8 oz.
The neck is made from a Quartersawn piece of Maple and topped with a AAA Dark Rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is carved to a 9.5" radius and the topped with 6100 frets. It's a silky playing guitar with a neck that is comfortable for any one who likes something on the thin side. The flatter than vintage radius and big, flat frets make this a lead guitarists dream.
Team the rippingly fast neck with a trio of Fender Custom Shop Hand Wound Texas Special Single Coil Pickups into the mix and you have THE PERFECT rock n' roll Strat! These pickups push tube amp's into drive mode a bit earlier than your average single coil, guaranteed to put a smile on your face! A 5 way switch, master volume, and two tone controls make finding all the right sounds easy.
