A resonant, lively replica of the lauded 1963 Fender Stratocaster!
Why we love this one? The neck and the tone, period. The Surf Green isn't so bad either (it's one of our favorite custom colors).
This '63 Custom Shop Strat is meant to replicate the feel, look, and sound of a great vintage Strat, and to us, mission accomplished. The 60s Oval C neck carve is a shop favorite as it comes close to some of our favorite vintage Strats. Just enough depth to fill your left hand, but not so chunky as to feel cumbersome to get around on. Paired with the narrow/tall 6015 frets, the playing experience is effortless.
The ultimate judge of an electric guitar, however, is the acoustic tone - this can really inform what you can expect once it's plugged in. This '63 is really loud, snappy, and alive when played sans amp.
Speaking of which...plugged into our trusty Victoria Club Deluxe, the Custom Shop '63 Strat pickups deliver classic, inspiring, Strat tones - from Tele-like bridge pickup tones, to warm 2 and 4 position tones, to killer glassy/bluesy sounding neck pickup tones....it's all here.
