The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop Ancho Poblano Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
An Alder body is finished in a cracking 2-Tone Sunburst journeyman finish. The Journeyman is a very lightly aged nitro finish; this gives the look and feel of a vintage guitar that has been lovingly cared for over the years. This finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other more modern finishes.
The Quartersawn Maple neck has a smooth finish and a 1951 U profile. This baseball bat feel is a real favourite with vintage guitar fans and gives you a real nice grip and playing experience. 21 super jumbo frets and a 9.5" radius make this a guitar equipped for every situation.
The defining feature is the signature Ancho Poblano singlecoil pickups, getting progressively hotter from neck to bridge, they are uniquely calibrated and offer a distinct tonal flavour. Overwound by hand they are the holy grail of single coils.
