FERNANDES SUSTAINER CIRCUIT
The Fernandes Sustainer driver in the neck position expands the guitar's traditional sonic capabilities by creating near-infinite single or multi-string sustain.
UNIQUE PICKUP CONFIGURATION
The single-coil-sized Duncan JB Jr. humbucking bridge pickup offers giant tone while the Texas Special single-coil middle pickup adds extra spank to the traditional Fender sound.
The 9.5"-radius fingerboard, topped with narrow-tall frets, makes precision soloing and chord playing easy across the entire neck.
"10/56 V" NECK PROFILE
This beefy, resonant neck feels instantly comfortable to most players' hands. "Soft V"-shaped near the nut, it rounds to a "C" profile as you ascend the neck, making it great for both chord playing and soloing.
CUSTOM NECK PLATE
The custom "Flower of Life" logo is an image said to represent the basis of music; the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between whole and semi-tones.
The vintage-style bridge and tuning machines give this guitar the authentic look, feel and tone of a classic Fender instrument.
