A totally unique handmade Stratocaster. A gorgeous Spruce and Mahogany layered body is complimented by a Mahogany neck and a custom made "Stained Glass" pickguard. The Skywood Pickups Serranos (6.0k, 6.5k, 6.7k), are a very versatile set! Neck is wound to vintage spec and provides the classic Strat neck pickup sounds we all love. The middle and bridge are overwound several thousand turns to help push an amp and provide a wide range of tones. Rather than use traditional plastic pickup covers, the pickups use open "tele neck" style nickel covers with Mahogany inlays. None of the usual plastic bits are boring on this guitar, with the knobs, tremolo tip, and switch tip all being mahogany color matched to the body. This guitar has been meticulously hand wired to be as versatile as possible, replacing the second tone knob with a rotary switch that allows for three more distinct pickup combinations, and truly has the potential to be your only guitar (Like any of us have that level of self control). The unique wiring of this guitar gives you the following modes:

Rotary Position 1 (Classic Strat)

Position 1 – Bridge pickup only
Position 2 – Bridge and Middle pickups in parallel
Position 3 – Middle pickup only
Position 4 – Middle and Neck pickups in parallel
Position 5 – Neck pickup only
Rotary Position 2

Position 1 – Bridge pickup only
Position 2 – Tele Middle (Bridge and Neck pickups in parallel)
Position 3 – Bridge Humbucker (Bridge and Middle pickups in series)
Position 4 – Fat Fourth (Bridge Humbucker and Neck pickup in parallel)
Position 5 – Neck pickup only
