« Masterbuild at fair Price  »

Audience: Anyone
S71 Masterbuilt CS Heavy Relic1959 Strat with Collins 59 SSS PUs.
This Guitar is a keeper. Stevie prepared and shipped the instrument quickly. It was setup nicely and right away ready to play.
First, the craftmenship is stunning. The aging job has been executed perfectly. The only execption I see is a bit too much gloss close to the nut, but nothing to bother with.
The gotoh ts101 tremolo system is well known and works great. The Kluson tuners suit perfectly and have a great greenish look. The neck plays also great and compares well to my Fender Custom Strat 63. Overall, this S71 Masterbuilt keeps up pretty will with the Custom Shop with its 60s Custom PUs. The S71 is equipped with Collins 59 SSS PUs. These do a fantastic job. I‘d recommend to give those PUs a try. They sound sweet, round and mellow. All three PUs are nicely put to a well matching set. Blues and rock of the 60s era is an easy task for this guitar. A nice feature is the ‚6th‘ position, a wiring for blending neck and Bridge PU. This guitar is a true masterbuilt at very reasonable costs.
