A departure from Fender’s usual tone wood choices, the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster tempers the traditional Strat sound with the rich sound and warm look of an okoume body with a shedua top. The okoume body has a snappy, highly dynamic attack while the shedua top adds a delightful accent to the instrument’s voice.
The 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster is loaded with three of our brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups. Voiced specifically foreach position, V-Mod pickups mix alnico magnettypes to produce powerful, nuanced tones withoriginal Fender sonic DNA.

The new modern 'Deep C'-shaped neck profile feels just right inyour hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easyto bend strings accurately and play perfectlyintonated chords.
With its original, one-of-a-kind sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition Shedua Top Stratocaster is a rare, inspiring example of Fender’s world-class craftsmanship.
