Fender Custom Shop Artisan Stratocaster Roasted Butternut Claro Walnut Top

Product ID: P-9018


Was £3,397.00

Model Overview:

Fender Custom Shop's Artisan series is intended to highlight exotic and beautiful woods with unique patterns and include a variety of unique appointments. In this instance a Roasted Butternut Body with Claro Walnut Top is paired with a One-Piece Medium-Roast AAA Birdseye Maple Neck.

The Neck itself is a familiar 1963 C profile with a 9.5"-12" compound radius allowing chords to be played comfortably at the low end of the neck whilst up closer to the body bends and lead work is made easer by the flatter playing surface of the African Blackwood fingerboard. The fingerboard itself is capped with 6105 Narrow Jumbo Frets. The pickups are Fender Custom Shop Hand Wound 60/63 Stratocaster pickups with the middle pickup being Reverse Wound and Reverse Polarity to provide humbucking tones on positions two and four on the five way selector switch.

Includes a Deluxe Hardshell Case, Strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
