Fender Custom Shop '60S Imperial Arc  ...Fender Custom Shop – Fender Custom Shop ’60S Imperial Arc Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Hss Masterbuilt By Dale Wilson Black Over Shoreline Gold
The limited-edition Fender Custom Shop Dealer Select Imperial Arc Stratocaster HSS is a 3-year Master-Built dream realized. Conceived in a Corona, CA. Mexican restaurant and illustrated on a napkin, the Imperial Arc Strat HSS was envisioned to be an exquisite old guitar to the touch, but with magical electronic powers to generate otherworldly sounds. The journey begins with a 1960 quartersawn oval C-shaped maple neck with a 9.5 radius maple fingerboard and 6105 frets. The alder body boasts a color-over-color finish only two of each combination have been produced. Both neck and body are sprayed with nitrocellulose lacquer and relicd. The Seymour Duncan custom Wide Range Zebra humbucker and neck and middle single-coils were created just for the Imperial Arc Series. The first tone control is a push/push pot that splits the humbucker. A Fender S-1 volume control switch enables a 12dB variable boost that is controlled by the 2nd tone control dial in the boost you want. The boost is true bypass; the guitar is passive when the boost is switched off. The resulting tone is sweet, throaty – electrifying.
