Fender Custom Shop Artisan Maple Burl Strat® with Madagascar Fingerboard

 

Visually and sonically captivating, the Artisan Maple Burl Strat strikes a chord with the senses—boasting a mix of exotic and roasted woods, vintage-style hardware and Fender Custom Shop master craftsmanship. A highly figured 4A flame maple burl top meets a roasted alder ash body for a distinctive look and exceptional resonance, while Fat ‘60s pickups with Vintage Modified #2 wiring yield best-possible Strat tone. Naturally, a 9.5”–12” compound radius flat-lam ebony Macassar fingerboard offers superb playability.

The neck is roasted 3A birdseye maple with a “’63 C”-shaped profile for ultimate comfort, and the vintage-style synchronized tremolo offers rock-solid tuning stability.

More features include a reverse-wound, reverse-polarity Fat ‘60s middle pickup to reduce hum, 21 6105 frets, 5-way switch, vintage-style tuning machines, 1-ply Brown Shell pickguard, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
