What we say:

At A Glance

Master Builder Dale Wilson has designed this guitar with great attention to detail and the result is a high end Strat that not only looks good but sounds good too. The Handwired Poblanos are a great choice and give you spectacular high output tones making this a great mix of classic looks and modern usability.

Features We Love:

Master Builder Designed by Dale Wilson

Dale has been a Master Builder since 2011 after arriving at Fender in 2003. Prior to joining Fender, he also worked at Dobro and Rickenbacker which gave him a wide range of experience. His high quality of work can clearly be seen in the design of this guitar. It brings together a great mix of classic looks and modern sensibilities. Fender Custom Shop guitars such as this make you realise that it is worth paying a bit more to get something that really stands above a lot of other guitars at a similar price point.

Handwired Poblano Pickups

These Custom Shop pickups are a tonal delight to the ears. Each pickup has been individually calibrated and uniquely overwound by hand to provide the player with a variety of high output sounds. From vintage tones with some extra juice to full-on leads or texas style licks, these pickups can handle it all with ease. Plenty of tonal variety that can cut through a mix or live setting without any trouble whatsoever.

Heavy Relic Finish

The attention to detail on the heavy relic finish is a real thing of beauty. The Black over Desert Sand has been worn in the appropriate places to reflect years of playing and life on the road. It gives the look of a guitar that has already lived a long and interesting life but without the associated problems that can come with a vintage instrument. The colour contrast between the black finish and the Desert Sand is a real thing of beauty and somehow makes this guitar look even classier!
