Fender Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 1963 HSS Heavy Relic Purple Metallic

$ 5290.27

You don’t see this fantastic purple metallic every day on a ’63 reissue and that’s why it goes great with this extraordinary guitar! The neck has this slim “Modern V” profile, a round-lam rosewood fingerboard with 12″ radius and 6105 “narrow tall” frets and is a pleasure to play. Thanks to the “Vintage Staggered” tuners, the tremolo can also be treated a little more roughly as usual – the tuning stability is great!
The “Pearly Gates” humbucker from Seymour Duncan in the bridge position passes on the warm and dynamic basic sound of this Strat to the amp. The tone always remains open and is basically suitable for all styles. There are 2 Fender “Fat 60s” single coils in the neck- and middle-position, whose sparkling tone complements the humbucker very well.

Additional Notes: HSS Body Routing, Unfin NB HREL, Tone Saver Treble Bleed
