LIMITED EDITION! The Artisan Series from the Custom Collection represents the ultimate in gorgeous, exotic tone woods combined in classic Fender models to create instruments that are just as much works of art as they are instruments. Visually and sonically inspiring, these instrument represent a stellar level of construction, choice tone woods and special electronics, resulting in a gourmet instrument capable of satiating even the most sophisticated of palates.
These Fender's went to various cities allowing players and dealers the opportunity to meet and ask questions with the Custom Shop builders and team members. You could special order these guitars there and check out select instruments. You would assume Fender would only bring their best and brightest instruments out for an opportunity like this and this Strat certainly doesn't disappoint. Incredible quality and attention to detail as you would expect and just fab to look at. Miles ahead in quality and build above any custom shop guitar i have seen under £4000. The body is select roasted alder for good tone with a AAA Grade Myrtle exotic top. The 25.5 inch scale triple A flamed maple neck features a 10 inch Madagascan Ebony fingerboard with 21 Dunlop 6105 narrow jumbo frets. And just when you think it doesnt get any better we have a set of Custom Shop Hand-Wound Ancho Poblano pick-ups.
Like most Custom Shop Fenders I've had, this Artisan plays and sounds great. The large 63 C shaped neck is meaty and feels great. The bigger frets allow for easy bends. The neck is straight and the action is good. The pickups sound awesome. Very cool and usable. Nothing to report in anyway shape or form regarding condition Like the other Artisan tele we have- shes factory fresh, unplayed and ready to go. Comes in original hard shell case with cert and a pile of unopened case candy.
