Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Flat Black Stratocaster by Todd Krause SN CZ516683

Regular price $6,785.00 Sale

We have seen a lot of guitars from Masterbuilder Todd Krause at the Fender Custom Shop. Few of them get the ooh's and aww's of Todd's Flat Black Strat. This one is finished in a satin black, with a thick 1 ply vinyl pickguard with a glossy sheen to it. This is one of the coolest guitars at the shop right now by far!

The thick, 1 ply vinyl black pickguard is set off by the Chrome lipstick covered Vintage Noiseless pickups and controls. The Chrome Harley Knobs top off the unique look perfectly. The neck profile is the Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster, Soft V. And what builder to better make a Clapton influenced Strat than the man who builds guitars for The Man, himself!

The neck is made from a highly figured piece of maple. Every inch, fret and contour has something interesting to appreciate. A 9.5" radius and vintage frets complete the Clapton-esque feel.

The pickups are the Vintage Noiseless which interacts beautifully with the 25db boost circuit installed in this guitar. The are built with Alnico 2 magnets  which create complex harmonics, a warm attack, and a less aggressive mid range... That is, until you engage the boost! It can go from classic clean Strat to rip roaring full on humbucker - ish tones that will have you leaving your boost and OD pedals at home. It will push an tube amp into overdrive, FAST! For singing leads, thick power chords, any scenario involving a driven amp this will be your go to! Even acoustically, this guitar rings with a sweet, bell-like chime that you don't find with every guitar you pick up. This one has some special acoustic principles that make it a very inspiring piece.
