Fender Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster (703)
A departure from Fender’s usual tone wood choices, the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster tempers the traditional Strat sound with the rich sound and warm look of an okoume body with a shedua top. The okoume body has a snappy, highly dynamic attack while the shedua top adds a delightful accent to the instrument’s voice.
The 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster is loaded with three of our brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups. Voiced specifically for each position, V-Mod pickups mix alnico magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory. The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.
With its original, one-of-a-kind sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster is a rare, inspiring example of Fender’s world-class craftsmanship.
