The guitar is an original Fender 60th Anniversary Strat™ model, based on the Fender TexMex Strats. It has white, dimmable side dot LEDs, one blue headstock LED covered by a small glass diamond, blue fingerboard LEDs and five blue pickguard LEDs in the shape of the diamond sticker.
The fingerboard dots have been replaced by precious abalone inlays, all LEDs are SMD-LEDs, so they are somewhat “camouflaged” in the inlays when off.
The guitar then had to have a trussrod cover, which Strats usually do not have. This cover is handmade of brushed aluminium and underlines — together with the blizzard pearl finish — the stylish character of this guitar.
The instrument has a rechargeable accupack, so that you do not have to replace anything nor open the guitar in any way. You just plug in an AC adaptor for two hours to recharge. Remote power (e.g. for exhibitions) can be connected to the other socket on the back.
Sound samples will soon be on the LED_guitars homepage to prove that the original sound of the Strat is unchanged.
The LED-Guitars website has also been enlarged to include the company’s history and photographs of the team behind LED-Guitars, Bernd Bauer and his son Nikolas Bauer.
LED-Guitars” beautiful and attention grabbing work is available on guitars and basses.
