Reverb Madness Strat Week, Day Five: Tolex

Of all the mutant Fender Stratocasters I’ve seen, this one takes the cake: it’s finished in the baffle weave, black tolex and controls of a ’60s Fender amplifier — it even has an amp’s red indicator light!

I’ve found that guitars sealed in outer skins like leather sound vaguely congested, a subtle lack of overtones I like to hear in a Strat. But the looks of this thing! It’s definitely one that would wow the punters at a show.
