One of, if not THE best Stratocaster we have ever had the pleasure of owning. The construction on this guitar is so high that it really deserves the title 'Master Built'. As soon as you pick it up you can just feel this is no ordinary Strat - the resonance among other things is just outstanding. Besides its unbelievable feel and playability, the heavy relic appearance is 100% authentic with an obviously incredible attention to detail.
Finally we must mention the neck... and what a neck it is! We can only assume that the previous owner custom ordered the guitar with an extra high grade flame as it really does look fantastic. The wood is so good that there's even some flaming in the face of the headstock. Not only that but it has a 9.5 inch fingerboard radius too! All we can do is hope that this one goes to a good home...
