Something a little different from Fender for 2017. Taking a step away from their traditional selection of tone woods, Fender introduce the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster. Incredibly rich and warm the Shedua top has a gorgeous tight grain which makes for a truly stunning guitar. Moving away from a traditional Alder body the Shedua Top Strat has an Okoume body which provides a snappier attack, complimenting the rich Shedua nicely.
A figured Maple neck sports a new modern Deep C profile for a more comfortable grip while the Maple fingerboard is slick and smooth. With such exotic tone woods you need a pickup that can do them justice, the Shedua Top Strat has just that. A set of V-Mod single coil pickups, each voiced specifically for their individual positions in the neck, middle and bridge. These guys are super versatile and offer a whole range of tonal possibilities.
On the surface the 2017 Fender Shedua Top Stratocaster may look a little different, but underneath that glorious top it still well and truly feels like part of the Strat family.
