A Vintage S style guitar modeled after the late 50s Strat, this one is all tone, all vibe, and all-around insane playability! The Ice Blue Metallic finish looks killer with the amazingly accurate relic job only Kelton Swade can do. We can't say enough about Kelton's work, it feels just like an old friend from the moment you pick it up. The hand-wound pickups are nothing short of incredible, true vintage tone but not weak. They exude that familiar 50s vibe, and cut easily through the mix with a chimey, sweet midrange. Fantastic bridge pickup with great bite that doesn't suffer from the typical, thin Stratocaster high end, and stands out with a full, harmonically rich tonal spectrum.
There is a reason some of the most successful musicians can be seen on stage with Kelton's pieces; they have been reverse engineered to sound just like the real thing at a fraction of the cost. You've got to play one!
