Hand built in sunny California, the Xotic California Classic XSC-1 is all about tone. With only the very best, most acoustically resonant woods selected, each guitar is a hand built masterpiece.
A boutique take on the classic Strat shape, the Alder body is finished in a lush Super Heavy Relic 3-Tone Sunburst, authentically aged; it looks fresh from the road. With a nitrocellulose lacquer coating, the body has space to breathe, allowing the beautiful, organic tones from each hand selected cut to really resonate.
The necks on these are something really special, 4A-Grade Flame Roasted Maple. With a Modern C Shape neck profile, 9.5" radius, Rosewood fingerboard and Jescar FW57110 frets it feels comfortable and familiar. Gotoh vintage style locking tuners and a Gotoh vintage style bridge deliver incredible tuning stability and intonation.
A trio of Xotic Raw Vintage, RV-60 singlecoil pickups deliver vintage Strat spank with a real punch and super clarity. Hand wound on site in LA, the Raw Vintage pickups are a great feature of the Xotic California Classic XSC-1.
