The Fender American Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster in Three Tone Sunburst pays homage to Legendary Strat-man, himself! This electric guitar celebrates the unique qualities of SRV's #1. Mentionables include a special 3 Ply Black Pickguard with SRV etched into it, a trio of Custom Shop Texas Special Pickups, and a Chunky C Shaped Neck, perfect for any player looking to man-handle a Strat the way SRV did!
An Alder Body gets the conversation started. This lovely tonewood has been a staple of Fender guitars since 1956. The body is finished, in Three Tone Sunburst is gorgeous and shows off the plain grain Alder nicely. The look is complemented by the custom pickguard engraved with "SRV" obviously the only guitar in the Fender line to be fitted with this special guard!
The neck is made from maple and carved to a Thick C Profile. We think of it as a 65 C, a bit more full-figured than an early 60s C. The fingerboard is made from Pau Ferro and it carries a 12" fingerboard radius. This is a wonderful playing guitar neck! 21 Narrow Tall frets give you a smooth and glassy playing surface while 25.5" scale length keeps the strings snappy.
A trio of Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Single Coil Stratocaster Pickups come factory installed. These pickups capture that Texas Tone better than any other pickups from Fender. These sweet with heat pickups push tube amps into overdrive a little earlier than lower output options. You want a little drive at lower volumes, this is the pickup for you! These pickups are tied to a master volume, 2 tone controls, and a 5-way pickup selector switch.
