This relic was inspired from a 2004 MIM Fender Strat Standard with a Rosewood fret board, a complete set of American Fender Custom Shop Texas Specials pickups, 5-way switch with grease bucket tone circuitry and finally a 500k volume pot plus a treble bleed circuit added complementing and supercharging the Texas Special pups.
This Strat looks awesome and sounds like true custom guitar. It growls, pops, and clicks like a vintage Stratocaster should then soars to the sky with searing lead progressions or rhythm and chord chomps.
