With a COA date of 3/16/11, this 1of 4 ‘Strat-o-Tele’ hybrid Masterbuild is fresh out of the oven!
Of all the Strat/Tele crossbreeds out there, this is one of the most interesting. First of all, it is a Masterbuild with the MB style stamp behind the headstock. A rear view also reveals a relief heel i.e. the Jeff Beck and Eric Johnson Strats. And there is no trem, as the bridge section is mostly Tele with the plate and Texas Special Tele bridge pup, although oddly enough, the saddles are modern Strat type. The neck pup is Strat Texas Spec, the body obviously Strat… and it has a Tele black guard & control plate. Pretty creative inbreeding here huh! Strat headstock on a Jeff Beck profile 9.5′ neck, but no LSR nut. Crazy!
