2012 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Beloved 1962 Fender Strat.
Customguitarboutique.com proudly introduces the Thomas S-Custom 62 exclusively available in the USA by yours truly.
The Thomas S-Custom 62 is inspired by the Historic and much loved Strat but it is by no means a 1:1 copy. A simple glance and you will notice the Thomas custom shop was able to capture the visual aesthetics and beauty of the 62, but as you focus in you will notice that this guitar has plenty of modern twists.
Handmade with a stunning European flamed maple neck and (14” Radius) fretboard. The neck is a littlebit wider (43mm at the nut) and parallel to the strings to obtain the "slipping"effect of a slim neck.
The truss rod is by stainless steel (truss rods are made in the custom shop, no store bought rods come out the Thomas custom shop) and put into the neck by cutting and re-glueing the fretboard of the same piece of flamed maple.
The Thomas S-Custom 62 is also one of the most ergonomic guitars we’ve seen in a very long time. From the thinner body to the half-inch radius borders of the body, the contouring on the back, which is curved; the carved cutaway and the slightly angled neck plate alleviate playing in the upper register making her a breeze to play.
The hardware is all top-notch modern muscle parts, consisting of wilkinson tremolo, schaller locking tuners and medium fretwire. The body is thinner than an original stratocaster, The wiring is also not original (not wired like a fender) hand wound pickups in the Thomas custom shop (alnico 5) splittable humbucker at bridge position (push-pull tone pot).
The neck is one fret longer, which produces more sustain and easy access to the trussrod at the end of the neck - instead of weakening the headstock.
The scale is 650mm instead of the 25.5"
