What have we here at RGG, well with tone as large as Texas and mile-high features to boot, the Ancho Poblano Stratocaster® delivers bold looks, feel and sound for the player that likes everything bigger.
At the heart of the beast are the all-new handwound Ancho Poblano pickups specially designed to deliver spicy expressive tones that get progressively hotter from neck to bridge. The middle and neck pickups are uniquely calibrated from string to string for enhanced solo work, while the flat-pole bridge pickup delivers a powerful toneful punch. Each pickup is individually hand wound and potted with secret “Custom Shop sauce” to curb microphonics while preserving an open yet focused tone.
Finished in time-honored 2-Color Sunburst, the alder body is treated with a shattered Journeyman Relic® finish to duplicate years of playing with a few friendly soul gashes and battle scars. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish delivers a natural feel while letting this firecracker instrument breathe and resonate freely. A quartersawn 1951 “U”-shape neck serves up a chunky “baseball bat” feel desired by vintage lovers and discerning players alike. And even with a big, bold personality all its own, the Ancho Poblano Strat oozes Fender purity of design in every way.
Other features include a 9.5″-radius maple fingerboard with bone nut and 21 super jumbo frets, phenolic black pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge and much more.
This baby is in totally original condition (Given that it is a Relic of course!) Comes with OHC, COA, all case candy, tool kit, lead, Fender leather strap and ‘unopened’ warranty envelope. Serial # CZ525338
All in all this is one lovely piece, so if you’re looking for an enviously unusual guitar, then this is definitely the one for you!
