This Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt 63 Stratocaster by Greg Fessler in Black is loaded with Mojo! Black on Black with Heavy Relic'ing always delivers a powerful visual impact. Case and point, this guitar. Heavy wear that you can feel, not just smoothly sanded off finish and paint, this guitar feels like it was someone's Number 1 for decades, then went through a board plane and refret before being put up for sale. Greg Fessler delivers yet another Astounding 63 Strat Heavy Relic!
A 2 piece Alder body is finished in Black and then heavily aged by Greg Fessler for a well-weathered look. It feels perfectly broken in, as though it has spent thousands of hours in the hands of someone who truly loved it.
A 60's Oval C Neck Profile is on the slim side, measuring in at .800" at the 1st fret and .900 at the 12th. The Maple neck tapers to a fuller feeling between the 7th and 8th fret. A 9.5" Radius and 6105 Frets make the fretboard a very comfortable playing surface. The AAA Rosewood fingerboard looks great as well.
A set of Handwound 60's Spec Single Coil Pickups come factory installed. These pickups have a lightly scooped mid-range, smooth and mellow highs, with a rich warm low end. A bit of added quack and dynamic ability is present, thanks to being hand-wound. A Master Volume, 2 x Tone Controls, and a 5-way switch round out the electronics.
