The idea of this limited Strat series of 2012 was to combine alder and ash in one guitar. The center block of the guitar is made of ash and the wings are made of alder. We've had several of these Duo Tone Strats before and each one was just awesome in sound. I don't know if it's really the wood combination, but definitely we have a Strat that plays in the upper league. Great response, bell-like and with nice overtones. Sounds like a really well-rehearsed vintage Strat. The neck has a somewhat stronger 50's profile with a very soft V and plays very well with the 9.5" radius and the almost new 6105 frets. The Fiesta Red is a perfect fit and with the very subtle relicing this Strat has a timeless, classic look. Top player in top condition!
