The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 69 Stratocaster Super Relic is part of the Master Vintage Players Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, Masterbuilt by John Cruz, exclusively for Make'n Music in the Fender Custom Shop!!! These special instruments are 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.
John Cruz Master Built electric guitars are coveted for the incredible tone, playability and realistic vintage appearance. The Fender Custom Shop won't even accept orders for new John Cruz Masterbuilt guitars at this time, and the wait for existing orders is over 2 years! If you have been looking for a John Cruz Strat, don't miss this fantastic opportunity.
This particular guitar is based on the famous Fender Custom Shop 1969 Stratocaster Jimi Hendrix played at Woodstocok, but built with modified specs to give it more vibe. It has a very special hand-distressed, Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! Another nifty feature is the stealthily mounted switch hidden discretely in the center of the volume knob. Custom wired to our specification, when engaged, this activates the neck / bridge pickup combination for all those Jimmy Page / Ritchie Blackmore type tones. 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 the John Cruz Master Design pickups (middle is reverse wound) for plenty of sparkle and chime but with a ballsier, beefier tone.
The Fender Custom Shop Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, but they play like a dream. This guitar has an incredible feeling 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 uses a vintage-style 4-bolt pocket for the best tone and stability.
