2021 Fender USA Artist Signature Series Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster

£1,699.00

About

I'm pleased to offer this absolutely stunning, as new condition 2021 Fender Artist Signature Series SRV Stratocaster.
USA made, with some unique features such as the left handed vibrato bridge akin to SRV's old Number 1, three Custom Shop Texas Specials, the chunky oval profile neck with 6105 frets and versatile 12" radius fingerboard along with the iconic SRV script logo engraved on the pickguard. 
New this guitar retails at £2,379, although you'll usually find them new from authorised dealers for around £2,100-£2,200. If this one was hanging on one of those dealers walls, you'd be hard pushed to know it wasn't a brand new example, although it is only now 3 years old. Beautifully condition, purchased by the Home of Tone from it's original careful owner who noted his pride in keeping his guitars in great condition which is clear to see. 
Comes complete with all of the original documentation, swing tags, certificate, original tweed G&G USA case which is in as new condition too, and new un-used strap. Very, very minor signs of it being played, by that I mean some minor plectrum marks on the pickguard and there is one little mark on the neck plate which I have detailed in one of the photos here. Other than that, it's like handling a brand new guitar so with the current new retail price in mind, this is a great saving for what feels very much like an as-new instrument. Pleasure to have something this well looked after available.

It is currently setup on 9.5 gauge strings, but upon request, can be setup on the string gauge of your choice. It plays very well, nice and resonant, notes ring out well and sounds superb too. All the classic 'bell' like strat tones, with that soaring aggressive bridge/lead tone SRV was known for too thanks to the Texas Specials in these. A cool Artist Signature Series model, great of course for a Stevie fan, but superb for a Strat fan in general too. 

Wiring wise, you have the very same spec as what I offer in my own SRV pre-wired harness for example. With a 5 way switch, master volume, tone 1 for neck pickup, tone 2 for middle pickup and no tone on the bridge. 'Reverse' or left handed vibrato bridge, just like Stevie's Number One. A gorgeoous shade of three colour burst, showing off a lovely quality piece of Alder.The Pau Ferro fingerboard has some nice bits of grain character, and is fretted really nicely with narrow tall 6105's so with the 12" radius fingerboard it's a breeze to play. Lovely example of what the USA Fender factory can produce when they put their minds to it!
