What we say:

The only thing a Stratocaster needs to make it unstoppable is something to fatten up the signal, to turn it from a mild mannered twang king to a fire-breathing, lava-spewing rock monster. Something like a mid boost circuit supplying up to 25dB of mids, something that could be dialled in with a tone knob so you could have as much or as little as you'd like. Something like that would be great...

This Custom Shop NOS (New Old Stock) Strat has exactly that! The mid boost makes this extremely flexible and powerful: you don't have to give up your bridge single coil in favour of a humbucker: this circuit brings the girth in any of the five pickup selections. It'll bring heat to your solos and fatness to your riffs.

New Old Stock (NOS) refers to a Custom Shop term explaining a finishing process that isn’t a Relic but instead simulates a guitar that hasn’t been used at all since it was built decades ago: it has lain in it’s case since it was made and has little to no wear, no scrapes and only the lightest patina of age present in very light discolouration and fading of parts along with a hint of oxidisation of the metal parts.

The great looking Strat is dressed for business in black on black with a AAA rosewood fretboard and vintage white plastic parts. This is one good looking Stratocaster. Other hardware includes an oval shape neck, vintage 60s style pickups pickups and a nitrocellulose lacquer. This is a wonderfully useful and attractive Custom Shop masterpiece.

Specification

Includes Eric Clapton Mid Boost System

The system replaces one of the original tone controls with a variable "Midrange Boost" control. The Mid Boost knob adjusts gain from 0 dB (no boost) to 25 dB (for killer mids). Great for clean and distortion tones. The TBX tone control is neutral in the middle position, cuts treble in one direction and cuts bass in the other direction.
