The flagship of Fender's production, instruments from the Custom Shop range are guitars and basses that meet the highest quality standards, be it in the wood selection, the pickups winding, the finishes or the overall build quality. This results in highly reliable instruments with inimitable sound, providing great playability.
You have to hold this guitar in your hands to feel what it has to give esthetically. There is no more finish, only the stained color, and the wood is apparent; you can feel it. The Candy Apple Red is so bland that it has reflections ranging from orange to farting red, depending on the light. A real stage effect, very rockstar-like. It is light too, which makes it immediately comfortable. The neck has a comfortable and familiar soft-V profile. The fingerboard is mounted with narrow-tall frets, which will be forgiving of attack differences but will require precision nonetheless.
But it's not all "vintage specs"! Its radius is compensated, which puts it at the best of both worlds of the Strat: 7.25" top for chords, 9.5" bottom for bends; it's fair and flawless. And the remarkable thing about this guitar is its Dual-Mag pickups. To build them, the Fender Custom Shop selects simple hand-wound Dual-Mag coils that use Alnico II magnets under the high strings to tame the highs and adds an Alnico V under the low strings for a piano-like response with rich compression. In addition to the usual pickup combinations, it is equipped with a Blender circuit to add the output of the neck pickup to the bridge and bridge-midrange positions. And to top it all off, a Fender Greasebucket allows for smooth treble roll without over-emphasizing the lows.
It comes in its Custom Shop box with its usual accessories and its certificate of authenticity.
