Today’s Guitar of the Day is super cool. What do you get when you combine a vintage-accurate ’56 Stratocaster with a mahogany body and a solid rosewood neck? You get an incredible tone and sustain machine, that’s what! The Fender Custom Shop Dale Wilson Masterbuilt 1956 Stratocaster Closet Classic is as authentic as it gets, right down to the “Abby-wound” pickups. But with the lightweight mahogany body (most Strats are ash or alder) and large C-shaped Indian rosewood neck (virtually all Strats have maple necks) with a 9.5-inch radius Indian rosewood fingerboard with jumbo 6100 frets, this guitar offers a resonance and tonality never heard before — to say nothing of incredible sustain and resonance!
It’s simply incredible!
