Spec Sheet
Detemple Strat – THIS one has some upper echelon tone!
Description:

And sometimes men must make choices that others would not…..this guitar is such a case.  Heralded by me as a ‘top Detemple tonally’ guitar, this one was sold to a great friend/customer….fast forward and this gentleman decided to pursue more acoustic play…while I pleaded with him not to part with this he decided it had to be….so he loses an irriplacable guitar and you gain a chance to acquire it.

I have had a huge percentage of Detemples’ production (nice use of apostrophe there huh…kid’s SAT prep paying off).   They all sound different.  I love this one because it has that Jangle while maintaining the fatness we all crave.  Super super super alive guitar that is wicked fun to play.

Along the way someone took the finish off the back of the neck & now it has a ‘satin’ feel.  SUPER smooth and fast.  I happen to LOVE this feel.  The neck is a nice large typical Detemple Soft-V at .91″ to .95″.  The radius is 9.5 and width 1-11/16″ .  The weight is a great 7lb-7oz.  You will find some titanium parts on this one.  A bit of wear outlined in the Spec/Condition sheet but overall a nice nonsmoking instrument with original hard case.

I’ve discounted this one for the wear/neck finish removal…but I should charge a premium because I like the feel of this one so much better.
