This guitar started its life with us as restoration project of a Vintage Fender Strat Body that had been refinished at some point in it's life. During the beginning phase of its stripping process Our luthier and Founder of "Medium Rare Guitars" who is formally of Gibson's Custom Shop in Nashville discovered it had once been sunburst and quickly decided it would be a crime to not keep this a paint over paint and continued with a full relic job! The Neck was a Musickraft blank which has been modified, hand shaped and outfitted with Medium Jumbo stainless steel frets. As a Diablo Ambassador it needed some tattoos if it was to represent us, so the headstock got some in-house laser engravings to make it official. The hardware was curated from our personal vintage hardware collections and The Bareknuckles where an easy choice to give this guitar the tonal attitude it needed to fit it's new life.

All of our personal Guitars, Motorcycles and Cars are performance based/typically heavily modified and meant to be used. This guitar is NO exception.. We Proudly Introduce The Diablo Rat Strat Relic!
