Sonic Evaluation

This Shell Pink heartbreaker is the definition of a mellow, sweet sounding Strat. The low-end is glassy and smooth, and the upper midrange is quack-y and vocal. In the trebles, you'll find some truly lovely chime! The attack is nice and spongey, too. I had a blast playing Chic-esque funk chords because its sweet, musical compression (possibly from the round-lam fretboard) made the attack so consistent. For that reason, this guitar loves to be slathered in gain, too. I also had a blast playing heavy, thick chords through a dimed tweed amp. Through a cleaner amp, I also got some wonderful Mayfield-esque soul tones and wailing blues--this guitar can really cry! Anyone searching for a mellow, soulful Strat with an icnredible amount of range will love this fearsome Fessler!

The Man Behind the Tone

Greg Fessler came to the Fender Custom Shop in 1990 and worked his way up through the ranks as an apprentice. He assisted with the Robben Ford signature line of guitars, eventually became the sole builder of those instruments, and finally wound up becoming the illustrious Mr. Ford’s own personal guitar-maker. Fessler has built one-off Stratocaster and Telecaster models for a host of players, including Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Healey, Hank Marvin, John Mayer, Rhonda Smith, Neil Schon and Pete Wentz. Fessler’s remarkable abilities have earned him accolades from many Fender artists and discerning customers worldwide, and every instrument he builds exemplifies the meticulous attention to detail and intense commitment it takes to earn the title of Master Builder.
