The Ancho Poblano Stratocaster from the Fender Custom Shop is a supremely cool Strat with some absolutely cool features. We have only had this in as Masterbuilt models before and these are our 1st team built versions. They surely are not leaving anything to be desired!
Have you ever wanted a Nocaster U Shaped Neck on a Strat? Well, here it is! A baseball bat of a neck is on this beauty and it is not for the faint of heart. A full inch from nut to butt, as I like to say, this is a MASSIVE neck sporting that early 50's telecaster vibe. The result is an incredibly resonate neck that helps provide impressive acoustic volume. A 9.5" fingerboard radius, 6100 frets, 25.5" scale length, and 1.65" nut combine for a great playing Strat!
This guitar is named after the pickups that are installed in it so they better be good! In fact, the are great! I hear them as being a more Vintage-Vibed Texas Special. There is some heat to them right off the bat but they clean up and warm up better than a Texas Special, at least to my ears. I find the top end a little more sweet, rather than cutting, so for those who still like some oopmh but perhaps with a smoother top end, the Ancho is worth a listen. These Hand Wound Pickups are tied to a master volume, 2 tone controls, and a 5 way switch.
