Combining vintage style with modern luxuries, the Limited Edition Tomatillo Stratocaster delivers sweet, flavorful tone and plenty of smooth playability. New pickups and a unique wiring scheme make this limited-edition guitar the perfect weapon to command the stage. The Journeyman Relic flash-coat lacquer finish allows the wood to breathe with pure resonance and ages in a distinctly personal way.
The trio of Tomatillo single-coil pickups share the same lineage as our Ancho Poblano and El Diablo pickups. Clean-sounding, with plenty of chime, the Tomatillo pickups are crafted around Alnico 2 magnets, simulating what an aged Alnico 5 pickup from the ‘50s might sound like today. ½ blender wiring turns the second tone control into a blend pot while the pickup switch is in Position 1 and 2, allowing you to mix the neck pickup in, shaping your tone to precisely match your taste.
