Replacement Alder Stratocaster body
Fender introduced Candy Apple Red as a custom colour for their Stratocaster and Telecaster range of guitars in 1963. The color quickly became one of Fender's most popular colors after Sunburst and Black. This unique colour is achieved by first spraying a base coat of metallic silver (Inca Silver), followed by a few coats of translucent red. The result is truly one of the most stunning finishes found on any electric guitar.
We've been making bodies and necks for many years now, and we have achieved a reputation among builders and luthiers for producing wood products of the highest quality.
We use only hand selected hardwoods from the USA to ensure consistency and quality, and manufacture everything in our own factory. We run a relatively small operation, meaning we can make everything by hand, without the need for expensive CNC machinery, thus keeping the costs relatively low.
All our Strat bodies are made from 2 piece matched American alder.
