Classic Stratocaster body with a Telecaster headstock color over color
Musical mischief abounds from a spirited Custom Shop creation that delivers all the sounds of a Stratocaster and a Telecaster. The 2016 Limited Edition Heavy Relic Mischief Maker is much more than a battered Stratocaster with a Telecaster neck—its modern wiring includes a Blender neck pickup control that delivers a full and truly variable range of Stratocaster and Telecaster tones.
Its trio of pickups includes a hand wound 1969 neck pickup, reverse-hand wound/reverse-polarity ’65 middle pickup and hand wound Texas Special bridge pickup, with even more tonal versatility from the Greasebucket™ master tone circuit (which rolls off highs without reducing gain), master volume control and five-way switch.
Other premium features include a Heavy Relic lacquer finish on a lightweight alder body, one-piece tinted maple birdseye neck with 10/’56 “V”-shaped profile and 9.5” fingerboard radius, jumbo frets and bone nut, single-ply eggshell pickguard and vintage hardware.
