This serial may be one of the most fearsome Fessler-built Stratocasters ever to come through the door at Wildwood. It has a big, rich sound when you play it unplugged, and things only get better when you amplify. It has an articulate, snappy attack and lots of dynamic range. When you really dig in, it compresses in a sweet natural way, and it sounds broader and more open the more you ease off with your right hand. This wide range of expression compels you to play with more dynamics and feel. The bridge pickup bites and sparkles over tight low-end, the middle pickup sounds full-bodied with lots of midrange chirp and quack, and the neck pickup is thick and throaty with smooth high end. Anyone looking for a killer Strat should check out this phenomenal Fessler!
This Greg Fessler-built gold sparkle beast is in great shape with no cosmetic flaws to speak of. The frets do show some very light wear, but they have lots of life in them. It comes with its original Fender Custom Shop hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.
