Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 56 Re-issue - Candy Tangerine RELIC

A beautiful Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 1956 Re-issue in Candy Tangerine that is as light as a feather. This is a great guitar to play, it has a soft V 10/56 quarter sawn maple neck. I have added a “Kingtone” switch to this guitar which adds 3 more “pre-set” tone options to the strat as well as the by-passed option to allow for a total of 4 Master EQ settings and then you have all of the 5 pick up selections as well so it really adds a lot of versatility to the Strat sound. 

Carr Mercury V Amplifier

The Carr Mercury V Amplifier is hand wired, point to point wiring and the attention to detail and build quality is second to none. My favorite amp that I've ever owned.  It's extremely versatile, easy to transport and built like a tank.   This amplifier is a recording guitar player's dream come true, able to cover a huge range of tones in an easily transportable package that also has a direct output which sounds great for recording so you can double track your parts by using the microphone for one track and the direct out for another track and eq them slightly differently and get some great results.

This Gibson Custom Shop 335 has an incredible tone and feel to it, I have owned quite a few Gibson 335 Guitars over the last 15 years and this one is the best of the lot. The pick ups are “un-potted” to give the guitar a more raw and organic tone and I believe that Gibson have nailed it, the notes are definitely raunchy and organic! This guitar can cover a very wide range of tones, from Country, Rock & Roll and Blues right through to Indie pop and Hard Rock.
