That’s it. Just, “Wow!”
Candy Apple Red
Candy Apple Red is one of Fender’s all time most desirable colors, and here, someone has found a way to make Candy Apple Red even more desirable, taking a Near Mint 1996 model Strat and glitzing it up with one of the best looking custom scratchplates we’ve ever seen.
A work of art
Long acknowledged as a work of art in its own right, with the ‘Valley Of Creation’ illustration, this Stratocaster should almost be hanging on a gallery wall somewhere. The striking scratchplate image is taken from the cover illustration of the July, 1948 issue of one of the great science fiction pulp magazines, Startling Stories. (The original 1948 magazine cover is shown to the right)
Leather jacket & ripped t-shirt
It would be a great pity if the previous owner had gone to this much trouble and the guitar sounded only ordinary: BUT, this is a seriously shit-hot sounding Strat! The original, copper-shielded pickups are perfectly balanced and do everything you expect of a professionally tuned Strat. They play clean turned down, they play dirty cranked up. They’ll go smooth and jazzy if you want, just as easily as they’ll go all leather jacket and ripped t-shirt.
Extremely clean condition
The guitar itself is in extremely clean condition – at first glance appearing almost brand new – you pretty much have to break out the magnifying glass to tell otherwise. The Candy Apple Red paintwork is in almost pristine condition, as is the fast-playing Maple neck, the Rosewood board and the frets. This guitar – this amazing work of art – has been really well cared for.
