Fender Custom Shop '63 Stratocaster, Sea Foam Green Sparkle, Relic
Fender Custom Shop '63 Stratocaster, Sea Foam Green Sparkle, Relic Overview by GAK
Wow! A bold and beautiful '63 Strat in the seldom seen Sea Foam Green Sparkle, with a Relic Finish. The 2 piece alder body has a few patches of bare wood showing through here and there, like a real showman's guitar that's seen some action. You won't be missed with this bold colour statement. The straight grain maple neck has a round-laminate AAA Greade Rosewood fretboard, topped off with a 9.5" Radius and Jumbo Frets. It's a killer sounding guitar, with looks to die for. So what's going on underneath the hood...
Underneath the parchment pickguard, sits a trio of hand-wound FAT '60s Pickups, as the name suggests an overwound and hot set! The reverse wound / reverse polarity middle pickup is hum-cancelling in the in-between positions, with a modern 5-way switch, it also comes with bridge wired to tone, and the master volume has a tone saver, so you don't loose treble as you roll the volume back.
