Brand new Fender Limited Edition Sandblasted Stratocaster - Crimson Red Transparent. Solidbody Electric Guitar with Sandblasted Ash Body, Maple Neck, Maple Fingerboard, 3 American Standard Single-coil Pickups, a Greasebucket tone circuit for taming high end, and a vintage-style tremolo, all of which add up to timeless Stratocaster tone.
This limited-edition Strat also sports a transparent finish that's been sandblasted to provide a unique look with a satin texture.
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. This Strat's 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. Maple neck and fingerboard with a modern "C" shape and a satin polyester finish on the back and a gloss finish on the fretboard and headstock
It is incredibly responsive to its tone control, giving you the flexibility to fine-tune your tone. But turn the no-load tone controller all the way up to 10, and 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.
