Hand built in sunny California, the Xotic California Classic XSC-2 is all about tone. With only the very best, most acoustically resonant woods selected, each guitar is a hand built masterpiece. This guitar is inspired by the specs of legendary American guitarist, Allen Hinds.
A boutique take on the classic Strat shape, the Alder body is finished in a lush Heavy Relic Lake Placid Blue, 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, AAAA-Grade Flame Roasted Maple. With a Modern C Shape neck profile, 12" radius 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 duo of Xotic RV-50 singlecoil pickups deliver vintage Strat spank with a real punch and super clarity. At the bridge you get the fantastic RV-PAF humbucker, with Alnico magnets, each pickup is hand wound on site in LA. They have a super wide tonal range with a really punchy low end. The Raw Vintage pickups are a great feature of the Xotic California Classic XSC-2.
