Its premium select alder body has been hand picked for it’s lightness: this plays an important part in the ‘airiness’ of the tone so it isn’t just about weight relief for the player. The finish is New Old Stock Faded Olympic White.
New Old Stock (NOS) refers to a Custom Shop term explaining a finishing process that isn’t a Relic but instead simulates a guitar that hasn’t been used at all since it was built decades ago: it has lain in it’s case since it was made and has little to no wear, no scrapes and only the lightest patina of age present in very light discolouration and fading of parts along with a hint of oxidisation of the metal parts.
The neck is rather special: it’s a comfortable and slim C profile (the most popular carve) with hand rolled edges for even greater comfort. Most importantly, and something of an exclusive on a Custom Shop guitar, there is a compound radius to the top of the fretboard: 7.25″ down at the nut levelling out to 9.5″ by the time we reach the high upper frets. This gives us the best of both worlds: chording is easy and comfortable whilst large bends won’t choke out. The neck also has vintage-styled locking tuners to improve function but preserve the late fifties look.
Excitingly, we have Josefina Campos pickups on this Strat! Josefina is the protege of the illustrious Abigail Ybarra and her pickups are proving to be extremely in demand. These 60s models are clean and bell-like but with a little hint of growl.
These guitars have some of the best features Fender have available!
