Looking for the ultimate Maple Neck Strat? With this Strat, Masterbuilder legend John Cruz has taken a real Strat from the book "Galaxy of Strats" as a model. This is also the reason why no aging template was used here, but the complete aging was done by hand. And it almost doesn't get more authentic than this! Every detail is coherent here. And John Cruz not only nailed the look, but also the sound ..... Pure vintage! The Handound Josefina 60's pickups harmonize perfectly with the assorted lightweight body. The guitar is super resonant at only 3070 grams! This is one of those guitars that you just don't want to put down when testing it out. Really remarkable how you can work with the tone here. Every minimal nuance of attack is precisely implemented. Despite the fast attack, it never sounds too sharp or harsh. Always round and balanced with just the right "bell tone" and the very slight compression known from the real old 50's. The exact specs can be found in the spec sheet. Whether collector or player ... who does not want to compromise in both areas and is looking for the optimal Maple Neck Strat ... here we go!
