    ASH BODY
    ASH BODY

    Strong and dense, with a striking grain pattern, ash is classic Fender tone wood. Notably resonant, it offers clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end.

    LACQUER FINISH
    LACQUER FINISH

    The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

    MODERN PLAYBILITY
    MODERN PLAYBILITY

    Combining a modern 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with narrow-tall frets gives this instrument a comfortable fret-hand feel while making it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
