Guitar Description: 

 Stratocaster with ACTIVE EMG Pick-ups!

Fender Active Blackie is loaded with EMG-SA pickups for extremely quiet operation.  Combine that with a 9.5 Fret board radius and very soft "V" neck Clapton profile design you'll like and won't let go of this guitar.

The Haywire Custom Shop Modified Active Blackie guitar is a high-powered stealth machine with a lightweight body. It is loaded with EMG-SA active pickups for the extended frequency response expected of an active guitar

 This is a great studio guitar because it is extremely quiet, letting your notes ring loud and clear while noiseless with no hum.

For players who love to do volume swells and reverse echo effects, the Black knurled Telecaster knob replaces the standard bell shaped knob 
making it 

easier to grasp due to its non-slip qualities. 

Overall, this is a great choice for quiet and reliable studio and live performance, and for those who require consistency and comfort with a balanced weight. 

The guitar is lightly and gently used and a little over 7 lbs.

This Guitar Features......

    EMG-SA active pickups

This SA active pickup Set combines the attributes of the early Strat™ sound but with an added midrange response and higher output, giving it "bell-like" ringing harmonics and increased sustain. One single Alnico bar magnet delivers classic overdrive with a smooth midrange distortion, while still retaining the familiar high-end of a single-coil pickup. These characteristics provide greater versatility than what is normally found in single-coil pickups.

 Telecaster volume knob for sure grip volume swells

 Gold hardware

    Maple fret board, Satin finish + Set-up

The Tremolo and
Low-Low Action Set-Up!

The Tremolo is Decked
 The electric guitar ‘Floating” tremolo or  "trem"  bridge is Decked when the screws are tightened under the tremolo cover plate in the back of the guitar body. Reasons to deck: 
1- Better tuning stability
               2- Lower action can be achieved 
               3- Consistent action everywhere 
 If done properly the springs will be so tight that the tremolo will not move thereby rendering it blocked unless the tremolo springs are loosened. The re-sale value is much better if you don’t physically change anything that can’t be reversed since lots of players still want a tremolo or whammy bar on their guitars. Fortunately there is another benefit. There is more sustain without the floating tremolo. If it’s blocked and it stays in perfect tune and it’s not permanent or invasive to your instrument and it’s completely reversible-then what’s not to like about that?

The neck is a pristine Maple Neck with a great feel and Tone a width of 1-11/16" at the nut and a "C" profile.

Made in the U.S.A  by : Haywire Custom Guitars

The sustain of this very comfortable neck is excellent, with an even and balanced tonal range. In terms of quality, convenience and long term serviceability -Great!

You can adjust it without taking the neck off.

The 9.5" radius playing surface is very comfortable.

   With a professional set-up already completed on this guitar, it plays exceptionally well

You'll be pleasantly surprised! 

It has a great feel for your fingers and/or slide playing. The resonance is great on this guitar

This Guitar Neck
Fingerboard Radius is 9.5"

The fingerboard, or playing surface of the guitar neck, is usually curved or radiused across its width. The purpose of this radius is to accommodate the natural ergonomic shape of your fingers when they are in playing position. Comfort is certainly a major factor in selecting a fingerboard radius but it is not the only factor. Musical Style... the fingerboard radius must also allow you to play the style of music you prefer.

The guitar is set up, intoned perfectly so any note or chord is in tune everywhere on the neck. The FRETS feel smooth, silky and they have a great tone. They have been leveled, re-crowned and polished.  Installed are a new set of  Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings 10-46 gauge Elixir strings for a great feel, good sustain and a great tone. This guitar has been played and thoroughly tested at Haywire Custom Shop. 

 There is no need to alter your technique as you move around on this guitar. The neck set up feels great and is consistent all the way up the neck. You can't get the same set-up when you buy off the rack in a music store. This is a **Custom** set up like you've never played and always wanted to. The Haywire Custom Shop takes pride in the set up work we do and I'm sure you'll be very pleased and surprised with the feel, action and performance of this very fine instrument. We encourage you to write us and let us know what you think. 

     This is a Haywire Custom Shop Modified Special... A medium weight solid ALDER Black Fender Stratocaster classic guitar with warm tone. Medium-weight bodies to help when you're playing all night long, because it's easier on the back and shoulder muscles.

What is a Custom Guitar Shop? It occurred to us at Haywire Custom Shop that many guitar players really have very little understanding of the scope and purpose of a custom guitar shop. It was discovered quite accidentally by listening closely to some of the questions received over the last few years. For example, one question that came up recently was, “Nice guitar-but how does it play"?  That question always puzzles us. Why?  Because it is our job as a #CustomGuitar Shop to simply make the guitar play-how the player wants it to play. That is as good as it gets but guitar players are so accustomed to traveling from store to store looking for the right instrument rather than just making a decision then turning it over to us to make it right.  A custom guitar facility is a smarter way to get what you need because they are the experts. It's not a players responsibility to get the guitar right-it's the custom shop techs. After the necessary adjustments, tweaks, intonation checks, action and electronics changes, neck modifications and proper string adjustments-you have a great playing guitar that plays EXACTLY how you need it to play as a guitarist. What could be simpler?

Our 8-point gig ready guitar process...

1. The 4-axis Alignment of the guitar neck. Each guitar neck is checked and adjusted to insure that it is true and straight to insure proper alignment on all axis. This step insures proper action and allows for more accurate and easier guitar tuning, playing and set-up in the following steps.

2. Inspect and Lube the guitar tuning gears. Before installing the guitar tuning gears, each one is checked thoroughly. Each tuning gear is adjusted-there is no play in the mechanism. They are then lubricated to insure smooth and even movement to make your guitar tune accurately.                            

3. Potting the guitar pickups-We dip the pickups in hot wax to reduce squeal and unwanted guitar feedback   

4. Prep the guitar body-Before installing the guitar electronic components, great care is taken to insure that all wires are properly routed, spaced, and grounded to insure years of trouble free service with your guitar.

5. Level and polish the frets-This insures that all of the guitar frets are level, eliminating any possibility of fret buzz due to unevenness.

6. Radius the guitar strings-Most guitar necks have a contour over the top of the neck. We adjust the strings to make sure that height of each string follows the contour of the guitar neck.

7. Adjusting the overall guitar string height and the action.Once we set the contour and radius of the guitar strings,then to adjust the overall height of the strings from the top of the frets to the bottom of the guitar strings.

8. Set the guitar intonation-This step is done twice. The intonation is set two times with a 24 hour seat-in period in between to allow the guitar to properly re-seat to the new adjustments.

One of the main functions of a Custom Guitar Shop should be to hit the target the first time by building as close to a perfect instrument as possible!

At Haywire our aim is getting better every day! The job is only complete when you are completely happy with your guitar because you'll use it every day. It needs to be comfortable and light-weight enough to play for hours at a time in any situation without fatigue.

The sound has to be clear and tone-great. It has to be built to withstand the rigors of being on the road whether touring or playing in local venues. It has to feel good to you when you play it.

The action and feel need to be consistent all the way down the neck so you won't be forced to alter your playing technique as you travel around on the fret board. A guitar players instrument needs to be in tune on every fret so we pay careful attention to the intonation settings.

It has to look good for you and represent your sense of style. The finish has to last for a long time to protect the wood from absorbing moisture from the atmosphere as well as sweat from direct contact with hard working hands.

The neck needs to have a truss rod that is easy to adjust for seasonal variations in temperature as well as the ability to transmit sound and add extra sustain for players. Strings added need to be a comfortable gauge without too much resistance thus making it easier to push down to the crown of the frets.

These are just some of the things that we think about every day to make sure we get it exactly right for guitar players who need a great instrument for their passion-PLAYING GUITAR!! We're building satisfied players..... One Haywire Guitar at a time!!

We do however, replace and upgrade parts as required. We buy guitars from ALL manufacturers used and new and alter and modify them.
