Holy Kill Bill!!!


Feb. 9, 2012
This week's Friday Strat feature comes a day early because I'm so excited at this find! In fact, my jeans grow moist as I type. TMI I know, but we don't see this sorta thing every Friday... 

The Music Zoo just listed this exquisite Stratocaster specimen they picked up at Winter NAMM. The John Cruz Masterbuilt includes contributions from 4 artists: tooled leather pickguard by Dru Whitefeather, paint work by Pamelina and inlay by Ron Thorn. 

The oil finished koa body sports a quartersawn flame maple neck in 60's oval "C" profile with 7.25" radius and jumbo frets. Pickups are Custom Shop 60's, and it weighs in at just under 8 lbs. Although not pictured above, the backside includes an added control cavity-- meaning the leather pickguard doesn't have to support pots and switch.
