A classic Strat in a rarely seen color - we consider ourselves lucky to have landed this gem from the Fender Custom Shop.
Every year, on the night before the NAMM show, Fender puts on an exclusive event for Custom Shop dealers. While there, we go through hundreds of guitars looking for the most unique in style, specs, and color. This particular Strat popped out right away - Tahitian Coral is an attention grabbing color, but the Faded and Aged treatment subdues in the perfect way. 3 hours later, the Truetone Music card was picked, and guitar was heading our way.
While the aesthetic has a 60's vintage vibe, this Strat has been tweaked to provide the player with a bit "more". The hand wound Texas Special pickups have a higher output and are sure to cut through the mix while still retaining a classic Strat tone. The Vintage Modified #2 wiring and a special “Tone-Saver” treble-bleed network keeps the tone consistent at any volume (no loss of highs when decreasing volume). A 9.5" radius and jumbo frets allows for easy lead work, and the 60's Oval "C" neck shape allows for a comfortable grip in any position.
This NAMM Limited Edition guitar was hand picked by us, and can now by yours. Come to Club Fender at Truetone Music to test it out, or order online right here. All of our instruments are set up upon arrival, and can be adjusted to any specification you desire. Make this one your next Strat today!
