Pure and simple, this instrument features classic Fender tone styling that evokes and honors the timeless Fender mainstays that came before it and contributed crucial DNA. From the quietest chord to the loudest note, and from the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, it’s the very essence of classic Fender design.
This Stratocaster features the notably elegant high-end design element of a beautifully figured flame maple top.
The humbucker in the bridge gives you the ability to handle more saturated distortions and punchy rhythm parts. The Neck and Middle singe-coil pickups are more suited for achieving the classic strat tones, being able to produce the hollow, voweled cleans that most people reference the stratocaster's signature tone to.
The modern C neck shape is designed for comfort and speed. Just the right thickness so the shoulder of the neck profile doesn't get in your way. The satin finish on the back of the neck allows your hand to glide up and down the neck without getting sticky or slowed down. This satin finish is an especially great feature for players who have a tendency to sweat a lot when practicing, jamming, or playing shows.
