Fender Custom Shop 1969 Stratocaster Relic - MASTERBUILT CARLOS LOPEZ
Dealer Select "Master Vintage Player" Series
MVP Strats and Teles are the Ultimate Relic guitars
Modified Hendrix / Woodstock "Maple Cap" '69 Strat Specs!
The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 69 Stratocaster Relic is part of the Master Vintage Player Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, built exclusively for Make'n Music in the Fender Custom Shop!!! This particular instrument is Masterbuilt by Carlos Lopez and custom designed to offer the Ultimate in Tone, Playability and Feel. Each guitar is hand-made to our specs in order to give the vibe and look of an actual vintage instrument, but with all the conveniences of a true modern player's piece.
Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, but they play like a dream. This particular guitar features modified Fender Custom Shop 1969 Stratocaster specs with an incredible neck - The '69 small U profile feels like the best comfy "C" shape you have ever felt. Easier chording, faster leads and no fretting out when you go for the big bends thanks to the 1&11/16" nut width, flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius and 6105 fret wire. Adjustments are a breeze too! The Bullet Truss Rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck for a tweak. The neck also uses a vintage-style 4-bolt pocket for the best tone and stability.
As an added bonus we requested an S-1 switch, discreetly hidden in the volume control, to activate the neck+bridge pickup combination for all those Jimmy Page / Ritchie Blackmore type sounds. Even a bit of Tele tone flavor. Of course all the classic Stratocaster tones you know and love are still there too - Right where they should be. These guitars are spec'd with Josephina Campos Hand-Wound pickups too - Custom Shop '69 pickups in the neck and middle position for that "Wind Cries Mary" Sparkle and Chime, but the bridge position gets a Custom Shop Fat 50's pickup for a slightly ballsier, beefier tone.
