Thin Sunburst finish, with thin Candy Apple Red with "Gold" undercoat over the top. JUST AS FENDER would of done back in the PRE CBS days.
Myself or anyone will not find a cooler PRE CBS Tone Rocket Fender Strat body such as this. If your in a band and you build this Strat to your taste.. just as Stevie, Eddie, Eric have done. It be your personal mark on your playing. Don't take this wrong, I've seen many great players come out onstage and have a all new shinny 2k Strat, or Fender relic Strat and play great but my ears knew.,. Green Wood cheap ass tone! ( you get my point)
GREAT WOOD ='s.... Great!
For the record,I built the Strat with 1961 Neck Body, Neck plate. Rest Custom Shop. This Body needs PRE CBS on it.. It deserves that..:)
