Hank Marvin 40th Anniversary Stratocaster

icontexto-webdev-social-bookmark-091Forty instruments were hand made in Fender’s US Custom Shop in 1998, to Hank’s specifications.  

hank40The two-piece construction is of light-weight ash, finished in vintage Fiesta Red with gold hardware including a Fender Classic Bridge, three Kinman HS pickups, and a white single-ply scratch plate with eight securing screws.  

The neck is made, to a 9.6″ radius, from limited edition birds-eye maple; fitted with gold Sperzel machine heads and twenty-two medium jumbo frets.  

A vintage logo and Hank Marvin’s signature (with a genuine ruby dotting the “i”) adorn the headstock.  

The instruments were retro-fitted (in the UK) with LEDs, which are set into the fret markers on the upper side of the neck.  

As originally supplied, the string gauges are 0.010″ to 0.046″ (as used by Hank Marvin).
