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 3 Tone Sunburst 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 sunburst is a real thing of beauty and somehow makes this guitar look even classier!
