Crafted to perfection by Masterbuilder Greg Fessler, this Custom Shop Masterbuilt '66 Stratocaster is a rare beast. Featuring captivating tiger stripe aesthetic, Custom Shop vintage design features, and hand-wound '64 single-coil Strat pickups, this gem of a guitar will add high-end flare to any collection.

Captivating Tiger Stripe Aesthetic
Created with passionate precision by Greg Fessler, this custom guitar showcases what you can do with flame maple placed carefully in the hands of an expert craftsman. Greg selected a top with gorgeous, subtle, and natural-looking tiger stripe  all across the body and neck of this guitar. The Aged Cherry Sunburst finish allows the beauty of the AAAA bookmatched flame maple top to shine through, while the back shows off the relatively subdued grain of the lightweight ash. The 1-piece AAAAA flame maple neck continues the tiger stripe aesthetic all the way up and across the headstock.

Custom Shop Vintage Design Features
Based on the iconic '66 Stratocaster, this Fender Custom Shop guitar features vintage parts and design features dating back to that golden era. The neck of this guitar, aside from having striking aesthetics, sports a '66 Oval "C" shape. It has a 6-saddle American Vintage Synchronized Tremolo bridge and vintage-style tuning machines. To complete the vintage design, this Custom Shop '66 Strat also features a large Strat headstock shape with '60s Bob Perine logo decal.

Hand-Wound '64 Single-Coil Strat Pickups
It's not just the looks of this guitar which exude vintage quality, it's the tone. This beautiful Strat is outfitted with three Custom Shop hand-wound single-coil '64 Strat pickups. Each pickup is individually scatter-wound with enameled wire and vintage staggered alnico 5 magnets. The middle pickup is a reverse-wound reverse-polarity pickup which eliminates hum. Like the original model, this guitar has classic three-way switching. In the same vein, you can access bridge-and-middle or middle-and-neck combined pickup tones by carefully balancing in between positions on the 3-way pickup selector switch. With Vintage Modified #2 wiring and a treble bleed circuit to preserve clear highs, this altered layout offers more creative control in any musical style.
