Fender Custom Shop 56 Heavy Relic Aged India Ivory over 2 Tone Sunburst
Baxter absolutely loves this piece! When he started playing this one...we had to ask him to put down the guitar after twenty minutes of play. This piece has a true magical 50's era sound and feel to her that really can dig when you get into that magical position 4. This is one milky and magical sounding guitar with that neck and middle pickup working in tandem. The bridge is able to cut just enough to be noticed but does not leave any harsh overtones to pain the sonic landscape. The "V" neck is a phenomenal example of a great 50's carve and again...Baxter loved it! We are huge fans of a nice 60's oval "C" but when a 50's carve is done right there is a real special feel there. This piece has a unique and beautiful finish with the Ivory top coat that really leaves a subtle perfection to the whole guitar. In the end this is one for the record books on our opinion. Ten out of ten if you are looking for a gorgeous example of what the Custom Shop can do when they have the 50's on their minds.
