This beautiful custom heavy relic Strat looks-plays and feels like a custom guitar should, plus the Fender Noiseless Pickups take it to a searing level of vintage tone. The aged Sunburst body has finish checking in all the right places. The neck has a modern 9.5 Radius “C”-shaped neck profile and nut with 22 frets. Aged to perfection, this neck is stunning and begs to be played. The finish on the back of the neck was removed to bare wood for the ultimate in smooth play-ability. The frets were leveled and polished then setup and intonated with new Slinky 10’s; she’s ready to go! Vintage tuners, bridge, screws and hardware were aged and sealed, so that they will look tomorrow, the way they look today for years to come.
Guitarwacky’s proprietary finish process for this Stratocaster involved several coats of nitro clear coat over Fender Sunburst; the finish is totally hand sanded, poly removed-rubbed and artfully aged; all processed by hand into a softened and smooth aged luster. This Strat’s finish is beautifully aged, soft and smooth to the touch.
