Fender American Sandblasted Ash Stratocaster

The Limited Edition Sandblasted Ash Stratocaster features one of the most alluringly unusual finish treatments yet seen on a Fender instrument….
After the transparent finish (in beautiful Sapphire Blue or Crimson Red) is applied, the ash body is literally sandblasted, leaving the surface grain pattern wonderfully textured with parallel ruts and grooves in which the black grain-filler coat shows beneath the color finish coat. It’s a truly beautiful look complemented by a black pickguard, and the “topography” of no two instruments is identical. The guitar is also finely appointed with American Standard single-coil Stratocaster pickups, a “no-load” tone control for the middle and bridge pickups (bypasses tone control circuitry when turned all the way up), and much more.
