Sunlight blazes golden chatoyant embers which create an illusion of movement while the flow of light transforms brown to gold and back again in the richness of ribbon sapele, the pinstriped cousin of mahogany. A dark and smoldering padauk fretboard arises from the embers, adorned with a bending and flowing pattern of abalone inlay which culminates with a smokey headstock thematically adorned with futher inlay. Fender Stratocaster hardware completes this light-hearted tribute, the Fender Bender.
