SURF GREEN (’61 Vintage Vault Classic)
This is the pinnacle of my Custom Strats. These are some of the Best Stratocasters I have ever had the pleasure to play. I don’t have the funds to purchase a “REAL” ’61 Strat.. or any other Fender made before 1976 for that matter… so I set out to make my own and with a help from my friends who have had the chance to play them, or better yet own them, I am told I got it! The Neck is an absolutely Fantastic Musikraft Maple Medium-Thick C Custom, Made to Order Neck! This neck also represents a “Custom Order” Matching Color Headstock. I use these Musikraft necks exclusively on the 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 and…
I DO NOT SAY THIS LIGHTLY… AND ALTHOUGH I AM A BIT BIASED, THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST FINISH I HAVE EVER SEEN ON A STRATOCASTER!!! ABSOLUTELY TONS OF TONE AND TONS OF VIBE ON THIS ONE!!!
Carefullly view the attached photos to understand what I am talking about. The checking, the color and slight Vintage Vault Classic distress to the Finish as well as the hardware and plastics is, simply put, AMAZING!!! I tried to capture the look of the Guitar accurately in the photos I’ve attached. Having said that, please understand I am no Photographer, it really is quite difficult to capture on film the Heavy Vibe this thing carries when seen in-person. To Continue, as if it’s not already enough, this Fantastic Instrument sports a full set of matching Lindy Fralin Hand Wound Blues Specials. It’s all here, from the Single Ply Vintage 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 Kluson Tuners this is as close to a ’61 Strat I can make. I’ve included a matching Vintage Style Surf Green Leather Strap…. Just Look at this Baby!!!… It’s a True CLASSIC!!!!…
This GUITAR IS FLAT-OUT BUEATIFUL!!!
