Sun Custom StratocasterSun Guitars
This Stratocaster is a custom build from Sun Custom guitars and it's a total killer! It's been built using top notch components and assembled with care. The body is a nice piece of center seamed lightweight alder while the maple neck is a medium 60's style "C" shaped profile with a rosewood fingerboard and 22 jumbo frets. The bridge is a vintage style Strat tremolo but with a brass block for improved sustain. All of this tone enhancing hardware doesn't come at the expense of additional weight as the guitar comes in at a light 7 lb. 8 oz. The finish is hand rubbed using proprietary, environmentally friendly materials and has a smooth, worn in feeling. The pickups are vintage style, staggered pole Alnico 5 units and are combined with a 5 way switch, master volume, master tone and a 3 position fat switch. This Sun plays great and has a smooth medium to low action. The tone is bright and juicy, very bouncy and lively but without any hint of harshness. Highs are chimey and bell-like while the bridge pickup has some added beef for soloing. These Sun guitars are exceptional, quality built units and represent tremendous value in a custom instrument.
