The Limited Edition ’55 Bone Tone Strat harkens back to an archetypal year for the Strat, with modified vintage-style features, gold hardware and added custom appointments. The two-piece ash body wears a relic lacquer finish, while the tinted one-piece 2A flame maple neck has a comfortable ’54 Strat “soft V” profile, vintage compound-radius fingerboard (7.25”-9.5”) and 21 narrow tall frets.
Master designed hand-wound Bone Tone pickups provide plenty of headroom with fewer turns of heavy formvar wire, beveled alnico 2 magnets and ’54 pickup covers. The five-way switch is connected to “½ blender” wiring, which lets the neck pickup be blended in positions 1 and 2. Other features include an eight-hole gold anodized pickguard, Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and a vintage-style disc string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
