Fender Custom Shop Artisan Claro Walnut Stratocaster
Alluringly warm-looking thanks to its mix of a roasted butternut body and claro walnut top, the Artisan Claro Walnut Strat effortlessly melds distinctively upscale looks with traditional Fender sound and design. A Fender Custom Shop original, crafted for the fearless player who’s eager to stand out on stage, this Strat is the pinnacle of elegance and playability.
Three hand-wound Custom Shop ’60/’63 single-coil Stratocaster pickups—including a RWRP middle pickup—provide authentic vintage-style tone, with all the pristine highs, punchy mids and robust lows that made the Strat a legend. Vintage Modified Strat #2 wiring adds even more sonic variety, connecting the middle pickup to the first tone control and adding our Tone-Saver treble-bleed circuit to the master volume control, ensuring your tone remains unchanged when reducing the instrument’s volume.
