An evolution of the original Ancho Poblano recipe—a trio of spicy hand-wound Ancho Poblano single-coil Strat pickups, fat neck and Vintage Modified #2 wiring— the Limited Edition Ancho Poblano Strat Super Relic turns the heat up to 11. It’s been said the neck has the most effect on a guitar’s tone after the pickups; a fat neck equals fat tone. We took that to heart when crafting the Limited Edition Ancho Poblano Strat Relic—giving it a fat “’51 U”-shaped profile and quartersawn maple neck. Only the artisans at the Dream Factory could have come up with this combination of ingredients and made them so delectable.
The alder body wears a Relic lacquer finish that lets the body “breathe” with enhanced tonal resonance while giving this Strat the look and feel of a well-loved, often-played companion. The 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard hosts 21 jumbo frets for a satisfyingly comfortable feel that hits the spot in an inspiring way. Other features include RWRP middle pickup, 5-way switching, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge and tuning machines, Black pickguard, bone nut and wing string tree with spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
This particular guitar was on display at the 2020 Fender Custom Shop Online Event In Corona, California. We were lucky enough to acquire this show piece for Eddies's Guitars.
