John Cruz Masterbuilt Strats and Teles are the Ultimate Relic electric guitars
The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 56 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. If you have been looking for a John Cruz Strat, don't miss this fantastic opportunity.
This particular guitar is built to modified early 56 Strat specs and has a very special hand-distressed, Heavy Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! Another nifty feature is the push button 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. A set of Custom John Cruz Master Design pickups provide plenty of spank, twang and sparkle with just enough extra beef to keep things sounding meaty.
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. 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 Truss Rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck for a tweak. These guitars also have an ultra-comfy, Custom 10/56 Soft "V" neck profile carved from a solid piece of Roasted, Flame Maple for the utmost in beauty, stability and tone.
