Fender Custom Shop Artisan Figured Mahogany Strat 2016 w COA and All Original Case Candy and OHSC

Just in at Diablo Guitars is this absolutely breathtaking Custom Shop Artisan Series Stratocaster. This gorgeous Stratocaster comes to us in an exotic solid roasted Okoume body finished with a figured Mahogany top. The neck is a beautiful and eye popping solid AAA birds eye maple. 

For the 2016 Artisan series, the Fender Custom Shop pushes the envelope in the name of art while still remaining true to its roots. Artisan series instruments are custom-built masterpieces, outfitted with special appointments and features unlike any other Custom Shop instrument. Yet with vintage design touches, the foundation and spirit is authentically Fender. Exotic bodies, lustrous gold hardware, premium ”roasted” bird’s-eye Maple necks and much more – every high-end feature is fashioned and finished with painstaking attention to detail. Every Artisan instrument is a beauty to behold – a culmination of sonic perfection, passion and purity of design, with classic Fender at the heart.

The Custom Shop Artisan Stratocaster is equipped with a trio of powerful Custom Shop hand-wound Fat ’50s single-coil strat pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup), along with five-way switching and Vintage Modified wiring with a ”Tone-Saver” treble bleed circuit. This configuration helps to keep the tone consistent regardless of volume, ensuring no loss of highs when decreasing the volume and providing versatility that is perfect for on stage or in the studio. Other premium features include a gold anodized pickguard and matching gold hardware, custom 4-bolt neck plate, a black hard shell case and a Custom Shop certificate of authenticity.

Our Artisan Strat has had the bridge pickup swapped out in favor of a DiMarzio DP218 which sounds just incredible and blends perfectly with the stock pickups. The guitar has been freshly set up with D’Addario .09-.42 strings and low fast action. Ships with COA and all original case candy in it’s Fender Custom Shop hard shell case.
