Custom Classic '61 S Type
Modelled after the classic guitars built in the late 50's early 60's. The Rosewood slab neck was one of the defining features of what were arguably the best guitars ever built by Fender. Power plant is Tonerider Classic Blues pickups. Standard S-type circuit plus tone control on the bridge pickup. The body and hardware has been deglossed to a soft satin glow giving this pristine guitar a friendly worn in feel.
