A Salmon Pink Stratocaster from Dale Wilson, Masterbuider at the Fender Custom Shop and you KNOW it's GOT to be a heavy relic! Salmon Pink is a couple of shades lighter than Fiesta, we have had customers call it a 'Faded Fiesta'. Whatever you call it, it's COOL! Plus, choose your preferred pickguard, Black 1 Ply, Tortoise, or Mint Green to get the EXACT look you want!
Dale Wilson has been producing Relic's lately that John Myatt would be proud of. That's the dude who tricked Sotheby's and Christie's with his own versions of priceless pieces of art. Next to actual vintage pieces, they are very hard to tell apart. Dale's neck tinting is spot on but his fretboard radius and fretwork are far superior to what we have seen on vintage guitars resulting in the best-looking, best-playing guitar.
A Rift Sawn Maple Neck is masterfully carved to a 60's oval C shape with a depth of .790" at the 1st fret and .930" at the 12th fret. This would qualify as a slim neck for our custom shop stock so if you dig a slim C that does have a healthy taper, this is a great neck. The Fingerboard was made from AAA Dark Rosewood which features vintage fretwork and a 7.25" for an authentically vintage feel. 1.65" Nut Width, 25.5" scale length, and a hand-cut bone nut give this guitar a vibrance and resonance that adds up to an inspiring playing experience.
If you aren't already hovering the Add to Cart button, the pickups are a set of Handwound Texas Special Pickups. These have always had that SRV association and they certainly do help push a tube amp into brown-town with some added heat and grease. These hand wounds clean up beautifully though, they are much more touch-sensitive and dynamic. A master volume, 2 tone controls, and a 5-way switch combine to grant you access to whatever it is your ear is searching for.
