    LIGHTWEIGHT ASH BODY
    LIGHTWEIGHT ASH BODY

    This guitar features a hand-selected lightweight ash body, guaranteed to weigh seven pounds or less. Strong and dense, ash is a longtime Fender classic for electric instrument bodies. Notably resonant and sweet sounding, it’s characterized by clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end.

    NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH
    NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH

    Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.

    GOLD HARDWARE
