Fender Custom Shop '60S Imperial Arc  ...Fender Custom Shop – Fender Custom Shop ’60S Imperial Arc Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard Sss Masterbuilt By Paul Waller Electric Guitar Candy Tangerine Over 3-Color Sunburst
The limited-edition Fender Custom Shop Dealer Select Imperial Arc Stratocaster is a 3-year Master-Built dream realized. Conceived in a Corona, CA. Mexican restaurant and illustrated on a napkin, the Imperial Arc Strat 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 Indian rosewood 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 single-coil pickups were created just for the Imperial Arc Series. The bridge pickup is a “lipstick”-style design. 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. Includes hardshell case.PAUL WALLERMaster Builder Paul Waller is a Southern California native with woodworking and guitar making in his blood.
