Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster in Ash

This is my latest guitar: a Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster in ash, with a maple neck and fretboard. The finish is called Aged Cherry Sunburst.

It joins my lineup of electric guitars, three of which (including this one) are American Fender Stratocasters.

Not only does it sound and feel great, but the Aged Cherry Sunburst finish looks awesome.

I wanted to capture the beauty of the finish, in what proved to be a tricky image due to the highly reflective nature of this Strat.

My blog article offers some more insight into the making of this image.
