STAINLESS STEEL FRETS
Stainless steel frets are significantly harder and smoother than traditional nickel-silver, giving them extreme durability and a glassy playing feel that makes bending easy.
AUGMENTED “D” NECK
The Augmented “D” neck profile is a refined hybrid shape with slightly more body than the Modern “D”. The profile becomes subtly fuller towards the twelfth fret, with shoulders that soften in the higher register. Ultra rolled fingerboard edges and a silky, smooth Ultra satin finish make the neck effortless to play.
ULTRA NOISELESS VINTAGE PICKUPS
The Ultra Noiseless™ Vintage pickups feature true classic Fender tone without hum. The volume knob’s S-1 switch adds the neck pickup in switch position one and two.
Built for speed and easy bending, the 10”-14” compound-radius fingerboard is rounded near the nut for chording, becoming increasingly flat as it nears the upper register for choke-free bending.
ENHANCED BODY CONTOURS
The tapered neck heel allows unparalleled access to the upper registers of the fingerboard, while the sculpted rear body contour is designed for comfort.
LOCKING TUNING MACHINES
A high-performance feature, locking tuning machines offer increased tuning stability while making string changes fast and easy.
