Description


We’ve been sitting on this magnificent six string wonder for a while, admiring its beauty and uniqueness, but it’s still hard to know where to start, however here’s the basics:-

 

- Alder body, custom ordered with no backplate – like a PRS
- Daphne Blue paintwork – one of the rarest of all Fender colors
- Maple neck, with super rare, two-tone Ebony fingerboard, (sometimes called “streaked Ebony”)
- AND, a calibrated set of the famous Fender Custom Shop ’69 Stratocaster pickups, aka the “Woodstock” pickups. Here’s the Fender spiel on the pickups:-

 

“Fender Custom Shop '69 Stratocaster pickups produce one of the most revered guitar sounds in popular music history – the full, punchy late sixties blues-rock tone that ruled the era, from Monterey on the West Coast to Woodstock on the East Coast. Because of the clarity and transparency created by the unique coil wind and magnet structure, the '69 pickup design works especially well with pedals, allowing the low end to thump and the high end to soar.”

 

Full pickup specs:-

- Enamel-coated magnet wire, for warm vintage-style tones
- Staggered pole pieces, for properly balanced string-to-string levels
- Alnico V magnets, for sonic focus and enhanced dynamics
- Matched 5.8k ohm output
- Reverse wound, reverse polarity middle pickup, to be fully noiseless in positions 2 & 4
- Period-correct cloth wire and grey fibre bobbins
- Aged white pickup covers

 

Brand new

With the protective plastic still on the scratchplate, other than recording it for our soundfile, this killer custom Strat is in brand new Mint* condition. The limited edition American Professional neck, (build date of June 2017), features a deep-C profile, 9½” fingerboard radius, hand-rolled edges, narrow-tall frets, deluxe American Professional locking tuners, and a bone nut. The two-point tremolo bridge features vintage-style double Fender-stamped bent seel saddles.

 

Your mother

Complete with its original late sixties/seventies-style black Tolex hard shell case, with chrome Fender badge, this is a guitar that will have your bandmates, audience members, casual friends – even your mother – wanting to get their hands on it. It’s a bit like the cool/bad guy in a Hollywood movie – pretty on the outside, with a mean interior, courtesy of those absolutely killer Custom Shop Woodstock pickups.
