Ferner Fine Instruments Custom S Stratocaster in Transparent Black!

$ 3544.00


Our classic series pays homage to some classic designs done in a boutique fashion that no factory could ever do. These guitars are built both on spec – like this one – and to order, completely from scratch. We do everything in-house. If you have something you envision, call or message us for a build template. Check our websites, Facebook and Youtube sites for past builds.

This is a gorgeous guitar. We have done this color scheme by request for several clients, but each one is unique. This features a hand-carved medium vintage C profile neck back, laminated flamed maple/mahogany/flamed maple with a Macassar Ebony fretboard. We only use genuine shell or stone, and the side markers are 3mm. 10″ fingerboard radius, American Standard wiring and the incomparable Jason Lollar Dirty Blonde set. This set features Jason’s Vintage Blonde in the neck and middle positions, with a Special S in the bridge which is wound a little bit hotter and tends to break up a little quicker than the Vintage Bridge. Personally, my favorite set he makes.

Custom made flamed maple pickguard with a 2 stage finish, and a matching burst vertically up the neck, as well as a burst faceplate.

Callaham Vintage S bridge, with CTS pots, vintage cloth covered wire, sprague orange drop cap with treble bleed resistor so the clarity is retained as volume goes down, Gotoh vintage tuning machines and our special shielding for extra quiet running in the studio or live. Immaculate setup with handcut bone nut, this plays like a dream. Comes with a hardshell case and free shipping to lower 48. As usual with us, this is truly one of a kind.

Other Stuff
This instrument features a hand cut bone nut and professional setup. If this ships to another climate, just like any instrument you buy anywhere, it needs to acclimate to your climate before it settles in. We do all our own fretwork, and we dress and level the frets so it plays better than anything you can buy in a store. We also will do adjustments to the buyer’s preference. We don’t have to do this, we do it so you get the highest level of satisfaction from us. We let our instruments sit for a week so they can settle in, then do another setup after that, as well as play the instruments to make sure they are perfect. If you favor an unusual string height or spacing, it is YOUR responsibility to take it to your local tech to do this unless you ask us ahead of time to do it for you. Product will be professionally packaged and insured. No returns unless unit is not as specified. We only sell top quality items. This is no exception. Payment is expected upon purchase, we accept all forms of payment. Happy shopping! And remember – if you didn’t have music, what would you do?
