Fender Custom Shop Poblano Stratocaster Super Heavy Relic in Aged Black

Dressed for Success

This piece was designed from the very start to be a lean, mean, rock n roll machine! We wanted a set of vintage (yet hot) pickups paired with a dynamo of a neck that would allow the player to take their music to the next level!

Built from a hand sleeted light and resonant piece of alder, and aged with a heavy relic Black and nitro top, this guitar breaths freely and resonates almost like an acoustic. When speccing this piece we were very specific in wanting a large ab=mount of wood showing not just for the aesthetic but for the wood to breathe, and breathe she does! 

We also wanted the largest neck that we could get for a Stratocaster, and Fender did not disappoint. The '51 "U" has more meat on the shoulders than almost any other Strat you will ever play and the amount of tonal transference that comes from it is undeniable! We also made sure to have the 6100 Jumbo frets added to make suer this guitar could fit the modern players needs. 

Topped off with the hand-wound Poblano pickups, you have an amazing historic pickups tone that has been hot rodded and brought to the present. There is a full sound and bass characteristic often missing in a pure vintage pup that the mad scientists at the Fender Custom Shop have remedied here!
In the end, if you are looking for a pure rock n roll guitar that pulls no punches (and has a gigantic neck) then you may have fond your soul mate.
