An exotic incarnation of the legendary Stratocaster, Fender is proud to introduce the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster Electric Guitar. Instead of using typical Strat tonewoods such as alder or ash, the body of the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster is crafted from two exotic tonewoods that are seldom used for solidbody electrics. Featuring an okoume body and a beautifully figured African shedua top, this Shedua Top Strat delivers a warm, balanced, rich voice that's matched by exceptionally stunning looks. It wears a single-ply brown anodized aluminum pickguard that complements the exquisite shedua top figure. Carved from gorgeous figured maple, the neck is shaped into a cozy Modern "Deep C" profile, and features a modern 9.5"-radius fingerboard with 22 narrow tall frets.
A departure from traditional tone wood choices, the elegant Figured shedua top combined with an oukome body for a totally unique aesthetic. The okoume body has a snappy, highly dynamic attack while the shedua top adds a delightful accent to the instrument's voice.
Designed for comfort and speed, the new “Deep C” neck profile sports more substantial shoulders. The increased mass and altered geometry creates a more natural feel that’s perfect for chord and single-note playing alike.
V-Mod Stratocaster pickups are engineered using a proprietary blend of alnico magnet types for the neck and middle pickups. Each pickup is voiced specifically for its position, creating high-output tone with vintage warmth and the crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend.
The treble-bleed circuit maintains the high end when turning down the volume knob to reduce gain, letting your tone shine through, no matter where the instrument’s volume is set.
A 1-ply anodized aluminum pickguard gives this guitar a classic and classy look.
As a special appointment, this guitar features an engraved 'Limited Edition' neck plate marking it as a special instrument. These are only available in very limited quantities and are destined to become truly sought-after collectibles.
With its original, one-of-a-kind sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster is a rare, inspiring example of Fender's world-class craftsmanship.
