Dual Ceramic Zebra Humbucking Pickups
For fat, high output rock tone with excellent clarity and punchy low-end, this instrument features ceramic humbucking pickups in both the bridge and neck positions
Six-Saddle Synchronized Tremolo with Block Saddles
This Stratocaster features a six-saddle synchronized tremolo bridge with block saddles for superior intonation, sustain, tuning stability, tremolo action and ease of adjustment.
Matching Painted Headstock
In addition to its many other fine features, this Stratocaster features an elegant matching painted headstock.
The largest of the fret sizes, narrow-tall frets are tall and narrow, letting you get a better grip on the strings for more control and easier bends and vibrato.
Slim "C"-Shaped Neck Profile
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a slim "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish – ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
12" Fingerboard Radius
This instrument features a 12” fingerboard radius—a very slight curvature that’s flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius and even a modern 9.5” radius. This fingerboard radius allows for low action and is especially well suited to bending notes and soloing.
