This Limited Edition El Diablo Strat is in their Faded Taos Turquoise finish and features the Heavy Relic aging treatment to give it the look and feel of a heavily played classic Strat.
The new Custom Shop hand wound El Diablo pickups are output calibrated for consistent volume in any position, and are packed with fiery Fender tone. These pickups combine with the sonically resonant eight-hole raw aluminum pickguard for dynamic, powerful tone. The master volume control features our Tone Saver Treble Bleed, allowing all of your tone to shine through at any volume setting while the bridge pickup includes our Greasebucket™ tone control circuit to retain full gain at any setting. The quartersawn maple neck’s 10/56 “V”-shaped profile flattens slightly from the “Soft V”-shape at the nut as you move up the neck, while the fingerboard sports 21 6100 jumbo frets and a modern 9.5”-radius—ideal for lead or rhythm playing alike.
The El Diablo Strat's two-piece alder body is constructed from wood specially selected for light weight, making it easy to wield this guitar all night long. The Heavy Relic treatment on the body, neck and hardware replicates the wear and tear from decades of heavy use. The incarnation of vintage cool and mojo—with tone from hell—the Custom Shop Limited Edition Heavy Relic El Diablo Strat is the perfect guitar to add some fiery bombast to your sound and stage show.
It includes an engraved Limited Edition neck plate, Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe hardshell case.
