On the surface this beauty looks like a classic reissued Strat, but sneaking in amongst it's appointments are some very modern and new features designed for 21 century players that produce a fantastic playing feel and sound from the moment it's plugged in.
Featuring the new 4th generation Noiseless pickups which are only found in this series, and are a massive step forward for Fender's pickup designs. Still producing a vintage sound with almost entirely noiseless performance, giving off warm and fat overdrive tones for the rock'n'roll requirements. The Bridge "Shawbucker" adds an extra layer of versatility. The "passing lane" switch allows you to switch between your pre-selected setting and the loudest setting on the guitar which is the bridge humbucker on 10!
The compound neck is comfortable for all playing styles, it's a modern C profile at the nut and slowly changes to a modern D profile by the time it reaches the neck heel. The neck heel itself has a new taper as well and is incredibly comfortable accessing the very top frets. The radius also goes from 9.5" to a super bend friendly 14"
The body is also sporting new contours on the back and forarm that are more ergonomic for the player, while still looking like the Strat you know and love.
Specs include a Alder body, Maple neck, maple neck and Medium Jumbo frets.
