Model Number: 9231012918
A distinctively modern take on the legendary classic returns to the main stage. The Postmodern Strat delivers an integral player-oriented configuration while capturing the essence of original design and brilliance. A two-piece select ash body (alder on Faded Sage Green model) wears a Journeyman Relic finish that gives the guitar a well-loved look and feel, while Closet Classic hardware provides extra gleam. The rift-sawn maple neck has a ’54 Strat-style “soft V” profile and features a round-lam rift-sawn maple fingerboard with a 9.5”-12” compound radius and 21 narrow tall frets for classic feel, improved comfort and easy note bends in the upper register. Dual-Mag II pickups deliver well-balanced tone with shimmering clear highs and rich lows, with a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup (for hum cancellation), five-way switch and Strat ½ Blender with Greasebucket II wiring, which features a .05uF capacitor for a late ’60s-style tonal sweep and less gain loss when attenuated.
Other features include a three-ply parchment pickguard, Custom Shop Vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree with tall metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
