This guitar isn't just about looks, however. Its light weight, combined with a comfortable Modern "C" neck, ensure that it's a joy to play as well. A trio of American Standard single-coil pickups and modern 5-way switching yield the full gamut of classic Strat tones. Complete with a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo, the Fender Limited-edition Sandblasted Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar delivers great tones and striking looks.
Sandblasted for a one-of-a-kind finish
After Fender applied a transparent finish to this guitar's ash body, it was sandblasted, leaving its surface grain pattern textured with parallel ruts and grooves. Its black grain-filler coat was then visible beneath the color finish coat, creating a one-of-a-kind surface topography — no two sandblasted instruments are alike. Beautifully complemented by a black pickguard, this Limited-edition Stratocaster is truly an exquisite instrument.
No-load tone control offers sonic purity
This Fender Limited-edition Sandblasted Stratocaster is incredibly responsive to its tone control, giving you the flexibility to fine-tune your tone. But if you turn its no-load tone controller all the way up to 10, then the tone circuit is actually removed completely from the signal path. You'll hit your amplifier with a hotter output and brighter tone than you'd get with normal tone circuits.
Fast-playing Modern "C" maple neck
Leo Fender wasn't afraid to think outside the box when it came to guitar designs. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blonde natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. This Limited-edition Sandblasted Stratocaster keeps the trademark maple neck and adds a rosewood fingerboard, comfortable Modern "C" shape, and 9.5" radius.
