MVP Series Strats and Teles are the Ultimate Relic & NOS guitars
The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This Masterbuilt 60 Stratocaster Super Relic is part of the Master Vintage Players Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, made exclusively for Make'n Music in the Fender Custom Shop!!!
The Master Vintage Player Series represents a unique and exciting project with Make'n Music and the Fender Custom Shop. These instruments were developed and conceived by Teddy Gordon of Make'n Music and Fender Masterbuilder John Cruz. Each guitar is comprised of carefully thought out specifications and features, which are designed to incorporate the ultimate in tone and playability while maintaining an undeniably vintage vibe and feel.
Each of these fine instruments features premium wood hand-selected for tone and weight, special electronics with custom wound John Cruz voiced pickups, a 9.5" fingerboard radius with 6105 frets, as well as hardware and finish upgrades for increased functionality and playability.
This particular guitar is one of our new "Featherweight" models Masterbuilt for us by Greg Fessler. It features a special body with woods hand-selected for extreme lightweight and resonance. The tone is open and airy with incredible definition. Every frequency can be heard clearly. The lows are tight and focused. The midrage is clear and the highs sweet and sparkley. Never harsh or squawky. Exactly like your would imagine an incredible vintage Strat to sound!
Built to modified early 60s Strat specs, this guitar has an ultra-comfy, Custom Mid 60's C neck profile. At approximately .825" - .945" it's not too thin and not too big. Perfectly shaped to fit in any size hands. The nut width is 1 &11/16" and the truss rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck fora tweak. How convenient is that? Another nifty feature of the MVP Series is the push buttom switch hidden discretely in the center of the volume knob. When activated this puts the neck / bridge pickup combination at your fingertips for all those Jimmy Page / Ritchie Blackmore type tones. Even a bit of Tele flavor. Of course all the classic Stratocaster sounds you know and love are still there too. Right where they should be.
I tried to think of everything. But if there are any specs you would like to see different or in addition to what we have here, as usual, we are always happy to special order the Custom Shop Fender electric guitar of your dreams. (There is a custom quote guide and more details below)
