It's legendary. Fender are famed for their Custom Shop guitars, which represent the best of the best when it comes to premium feel and superb tone. Hand crafted with the finest attention to detail and features which will make your jaw drop, only holding one of these guitars can show you how truly stunning and pristine they truly are. They're guaranteed to make your music shine.
Bursting with tone. The hand-wound single-coil pickups in the neck, middle, and bridge are sure to give you goosebumps. They have that classic, punchy twang which was so loved by the guitarists of the '50s (and guitarists from decades afterwards), with slightly more tonal thickness for added richness. The bridge pickup brings out more crunch and bite, but is still more than smooth enough for soaring lead lines. You'll find the neck pickup is rich and fat, beefing up each note you play with vintage warmth. And the middle pickup is a perfect blend of the two, adding further dynamism to your overall sound. Whether you like it clean or crunchy, soft or loud – these pickups will never let you down.
Liberate your licks. The Soft V maple neck of this sublime Strat is as luxurious as it is smooth. Crafted with expert attention to detail, it has been designed to give your hand a comfortable ride as you fly along the fretboard. A Journeyman Relic lacquer finish makes it slick and easy to play, whilst the maple construction gives it a beautifully bright resonance. And being roasted, it looks stunning, whilst being more stable and durable. This is a neck upon which you will write your most inspired music – and it'll all come naturally.
Sleek. Refined. Superior. There's also a pristine maple fretboard to go with the neck. Bright and beautiful, it delivers the ideal playing experience. Your fingers will be in paradise when they feel just how smooth, fast, and comfortable this tool truly is. Fret transitions will be a breeze, and you'll be able to improvise at will. Whether you’re jamming some blues or strumming some rock 'n' roll, this snappy, premium wood will deliver the perfect resonance and playability.
It doesn't get more creative than using a whammy bar when performing. You can inject your riffs with your own flair by giving them that unmistakable vibrato 'wobble'. Whether you're giving your solo that extra kick, or simply decorating chords with some elegant shimmer – this Custom Shop Vintage Synchronised tremolo system gives players an even bigger platform to experiment their sound with. A Strat wouldn't be a Strat without it. Complete with a deluxe hardshell case, certificate of authenticity, and quality strap, this Journeyman will handle the needs of any modern, professional musician.
