A Strat for Friday #61 - Wolds Guitars - Olympic S-type


Between the Americans and the Brits, I honestly can't say who's more relic crazy. Does anyone really know for sure?

Chris of UK's Wolds Guitars was kind enough to send us the scoop on this sexy little S-type roadster. His stuff is more on the tastefully aged side, without too much distress & duress. Click photo for a great photo layout on this one.

Under the hood:

"Olympic white S-series in Nitrocellulose. Alder body. Birdseye maple neck, Medium C-profile, slab style rosewood fretboard, 10" straight radius, 21 frets - 6105. 1 11/16" (43mm) bone nut. Gold plated hardware.
