Heavy Relic Treatment

The Fender Custom Shop LTD HS Strat is a unique guitar that will stand out from any crowd. Finished in an aged white blonde colour, the HS Strat features a heavy relic treatment on both the body and the neck that replicates the wear and tear from decades of heavy use , and a look that many guitarists long to achieve. The headstock also continues the aged-look and ties in well with the body-work adding extra authenticity to the guitar. Overall, its grungy appearance gives the HS Strat a deceiving history.

The two-piece body has been especially crafted from hand-selected alder, and carefully chosen by the Custom Shop for its tone, weight and appearance. This superb attention to detail provides you with a quality instrument that you can rely on, and also light enough to be played all night long.

V-Shaped Neck Profile

Sporting a 'soft V' shaped neck, the HS Strat offers comfort and ease of playing, and is also ideal for thumb-over playing. This style of neck maintains the replicated authenticity of the guitar, as soft v-shaped necks were originally designed to help stabilize the neck before the invention of truss rods. Fender use rift sawn maple for many of their guitar necks due to its strength, stability and quality.

Electronics

The Fender Custom Shop LTD HS Strat is equipped with a Twisted Tele pickup and an overwound EVH bridge pickup, providing a distinctive sound. The twisted tele pickup offers a powerful high output, with a classic Telecaster tone that many guitarists will instantly recognise. As well as this neck pickup, the overwound EVH humbucker pickup on the bridge delivers crisp articulation, and also full sustain on every string, allowing each string to ring out proud and true.
