"Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt 1959 Stratocaster Closet Classic in VIntage Blonde
JC 2205 Built by John Cruz

This Fender Custom Shop John Cruz Master Built 59 Stratocaster Closet Classic in Vintage Blonde is epic! Full stunningly great tones from rock to blues to some great country twang. No matter what pickup is used the tone stays clear and sharp. This guitar is loaded with the John Cruz Bone Tone Pickup set that he collaborated with Abbey to help develop. They are low output and really nail that classic Fender tone. They also interact with pedals INCREDIBLY well. So if you are a pedal junky, these pickups would help bring the best out of your board! Bridge pickup has a real kick to it. Very meaty and full. The neck pickup is smooth and creamy with great sustain. The 2 and 4 positions have enough twang to satisfy the chicken pickers. Middle pickup is perfect for blues and rock riffing. The Mid 60's C neck is comfortable and easy to play..."
