Wow. Wow. WOW.
We're completely blown away by this brand new Fender Custom Shop LTD Roasted Pine Stratocaster. Lightweight with incredible acoustic resonance, a gorgeous roasted maple neck with a silky smooth 50s Soft V carve, and handwired pickups that sound absolutely stellar make this one of the best CS Strats we've had in the shop to date.
The lightweight roasted pine body is finished in Desert Sand, arguably one of the more vibey colors out there. Lightly aged in the Journeyman finish, this guitar captures the best of that "closet classic" aesthetic, providing the player with a more broken-in feel.
Tonally, combine the best of the quintessential Strat sound with a little more meat in the bridge position a la Telecaster. Woody, open, and responsive with great attack.
We're already on the lookout for another of these, because a Strat this good will simply not last.
Priced with hardshell case.
