Daphne Blue Stratocaster
This guitar was hand made out of one piece of swamp ash for the body, and one piece of rock maple for the neck. It was also finished here at Milwaukee Guitar Company in the old school traditional nitrocellulose lacquer that Luthiers used in the golden age of guitar making. The finish is very thin and allows the guitar to resonate more freely. Vintage enthusiasts would have it no other way. We started using the classic 5 way switching system that put the strat at the forefront of guitar tone, but Milwaukee Guitar Company likes to blend both worlds of tradition and technology. We decided to go for a bit more complex 12 way switching system which offers series and parallel combinations as well as any combination of pickups on at once. The finishing touches are of course the traditional hand carved bone nut, contrasted by the less traditional 40:1 gear ratio locking tuners which equate to the utmost tuning stability while using a vintage tremolo.
