Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 1955 Heavy Relic FR Midnight Purple Ron Thorn


The idea for this unique "Midnight Purple" Strat was born in Guitar-Place and implemented in an excellent manner in the Fender Custom Shop by none other than Masterbuilder Ron Thorn. The result was a very special kind of heavy aging! Uncompromisingly rocked. Burned by many cigarettes. If you get closer, you can even SMELL it, that magical scent of rock 'n' roll, stage aura, smoke and whiskey. This "Midnight Purple Monster" tells stories of tough years "on the road!"

Even the pickups indicate that this is a Strat for the heavier group among guitarists. The Seymour Duncan "Pearly Gates" humbucker on the bridge is one of the best that can be used for classic rock and blues sounds. But this Strat can also be different: She is a real Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde Biest, which in switch position 1-4 creates wonderful pearly sounds with their two Handwound Texas Special single-coil pickups.

Additional Notes:

-complete neck really worn & dirty, headstock same & with marks of cigarettes…
-Pearly Gates HB in bridge position
-ends of frets quite straight for more space on top
