SONIC GREEN (Early 60’s VINTAGE VAULT) “Ole Miss”
This is the Newest of my Vintage Vault Strats… it is fashioned after an early 60’s model that began as a Sonic Blue finished guitar that has yellowed through the ages and now sports what I like to call a Sonic Green finish. I wanted the guitar to have a finish that was not too worn and still held a bit of it’s original shine. The hardware is also appropriately aged and is age specific.
This is the pinnacle of my Custom Strats. These are some of the Best Stratocasters I have had the pleasure to play. The Neck is an absolutely Fantastic Musikraft Maple Medium C, Custom Made to Order Neck! This neck also represents a custom order with Matching Colored Headstock. I use these Musikraft necks exclusively on these Vintage Vault Models. They are the closest thing to an early Vintage Fender Neck you can get… The Body is also an Alder Fender Licensed product. The Finish was done by the Great Scotty Huffman. I cannot say enough about Scotty!!!
THIS IS FAST BECOMING MY FAVORITE FINISH OF ALL THE VINTAGE VAULT MODELS AND IT TOOK QUITE A BIT OF COJOLING TO GET THIS MUCH VIBE INTO ONE FINISH! THIS GUITAR REALLY CHANGES COLOR DEPENDING ON THE LIGHT.. It has so much Vibe that is spurred me to give it a name and that name is … “Ole Miss” !!!
I have attempted to include a few photos of this, but I am not a professional photographer and in the end, you have to see it in person to really get what I am talking about… But it is truely amazing!!! The checking and the aged plastic and pickguard really puts this guitar over the top! To Continue, as if it’s not already enough, this Fantastic Instrument sports a full set of Matching Lindy Fralin Hand Wound Vintage Strat pickups. It’s all here, from the aged pearloid Pick Guard and Matching Plastics to the Vintage Fender Stamped Saddles, the Period Specific Serial Number on the Neck Plate and the perfect Vintage Style Cream Bottons Kluson Tuners this is as close to an earl 60’s Strat I can make. I’ve included an appropriate vintage style Planet Waves Strap….
Just Look at this Baby!!!… It’s a True CLASSIC!!!!… This GUITAR IS MAGNIFICIENT!!!
