Jason Smith knocked this FenderÂ® Custom Shop Jason Smith Masterbuilt 1961 Stratocaster Relic in Salmon Pink out of the park!
Itâ€™s finish in a Faded Fiesta Red called
Salmon and is a great, striking shade that certainly stands out. The
neck is carved to a 60â€™s Oval C Shape and topped with AAA Dark Rosewood,
a 9.5â€ť Radius and 6100 Frets. The pickups are a set of Handwound Texas
Special Pickups that have the perfect amount of heat when cranked up but
smooth out with a roll of the volume control. They have nice quack in 2
and 4 and very bold sounds in 1, 3, and 5. Looking for a great
sounding, unique looking Strat? Well, here it is!
Does your guitar buzz when you play certain notes?
Do chords sound out of tune when you play them?
are things that can be fixed when you have the frets and neck properly
set up. Fine-tuning the neck and frets previously required hours of work
by a skilled luthier. Now this can be accomplished in hours using out
innovative German-built Plek machine.This incredibly
sophisticated, computer-controlled machine scans and evaluates the
positions of the strings, string height, and frets along the length of
the neck. It then compares the measured result to stored optimum values.
It then cuts and smooths the frets and nut to achieve the best
playability with minimum string height. The result is a fretboard that
feels great with every note ringing out clear and true.
The Plek machine can also cut a nut and plane a finger board.
We can only do Nickel Silver Frets. No Stainless Steel Frets.
Check out our videos and see it in action.

I have purchased two Guitars from Frank and also had one of my other
guitars PLEKKed by George, and have been very happy with the
transactions. The last guitar I purchased had a nitro lacquer neck that
developed a very sticky feel and a sticky residue actually began to come
off the back of the neck when the guitar was played for a moderate
period of time. Frank stayed in contact with me constantly in an
attempt to remedy the issue and when I was unable to fix the problem
here, he asked me to return the guitar for inspection. After the
manufacturers rep inspected the guitar, they decided to replace the
entire guitar rather than to keep me waiting for repairs! The
replacement was great, and the whole thing as handled in a super timely
manner. Through it all, Frank stayed in touch by phone. I was expecting
to get the run around from the manufacturer, but Frank really had my
back! I am very happy with the way I was treated and I highly recommend
the Music Gallery to all my friends!

Ive been using this great music store for the last 25 years! Frank,
George and Chip are at the top of their game. True professionals and
great guys. I only bring my guitars to them for work! I will not let
anyone else touch my guitars. From custom Fenders to Martins, Frank is
the man to see. I have purchased Custom Shop Tele's to great boutique
amps. This is the only music store you need.
Just had my second guitar PLEK'd at the MG. George does an amazing job. Super detailed. Plays way better now!The customer service here is top shelf. Check them out. I am impressed.
