He wanted something somehow familiar and entirely different. It looks like a standard Strat, but there’s loads more beneath the surface. Take a closer look and you’ll find the familiar grain of swamp ash dancing through a custom translucent white wash lacquer finish, offset by a stunning ebonized walnut pickguard. With its thin D shape neck and pistachio fretboard, it plays as fast and free as its flamed maple neck sounds. Hand wound vintage single coil pickups give this axe its bite, and the Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge gives it some play. In other words, it has the classic rock and roll look and sound, only it’s turned up to 11 and eager to strut its stuff.
