Wildwoodians, we are proud to present yet another compelling chapter in our Thin Skin story: the Roasted Ash Thin Skin Stratocaster! Breaking new ground always gets us excited here at Wildwood, so we are positively jazzed about these Strats, because they let us accomplish a bunch of exciting firsts with our brilliant friends at Fender. For instance, they're the first Thin Skin to sport a 100% satin finish instead of the typical gloss. It also marks the first time we've ever done a Thin Skin with a roasted body AND a roasted maple neck. Finally (and this is the part that gets us especially stoked), they're the first Thin Skin we've ever done that isn't tied to a specific year or model from the past. With the Roasted Ash Stratocaster, we wanted to add to the Strat's storied history by adding some brand-new wrinkles to one of the most iconic designs in musical history. With this in mind, our friends at Fender delivered us axes that exceeded our wildest expectations, so let's dive deeper and see what makes them such an exciting addition to the mythology of the Stratocaster. Of course, all new things come from old, so there are a few key reference points for the Roasted Ash Strat. We love the sound of Fender's '54 Custom Shop single-coils so much that we put them in most of our Thin Skins already, so we figured there was no point in fixing something so decidedly unbroken! The slightly-underwound single-coils have smooth, glassy lows to go with sweet, singing highs and vocal, cutting midrange, and this frequency response translates to an incredibly dynamic, expressive playing experience.

Very subtle but noticeable difference with roasted bodies to 'normal' ...call me old fashioned but still like the sound of the 50's original swamp ash stratocasters the best !
I have one of these! It's cool but I would not call it bright! WW says Greg dimes ALL the knobs. My rig actually needs a treble boost to get close to this....
Bring it back to the store I want to buy it !!!
Gregory can play a broom and make it sound good. I ain’t buyin' it based on this tantalizing performance. It's Snake oil I tell ya!
Damn, the best guitarist I’ve ever seen playing the most beautiful Strat I’ve ever seen! Saving this vid! Wondering how much $$ for it?
If it was hardtail, I would buy one!
Nice nod to Richie Blackmore's playing on Lazy Greg, along with all the other musical nods you gave! Greetings to you from Ireland, and say a big hello to my good friend Gil Paris when you see him again! :-)
My fav colour
Can anyone tell me if he's using a pedal or not
I can't tell if I really love or really hate the look of this guitar. Ever been in house that was remodeled in the 60's with wood paneling everywhere? It kinda gives me that vibe. But then again...
Love that natural look
roastedness even makes friedman sound warm...wow
Roasted I dig it!
Imagine a Jazzmaster with these specs.
Please stop saying 'posish'
man the clean stuff sounds so good
I have this guitar, but mine is a 56 American Vintage Stratocaster. Only difference should be the 7.25 radius and maybe mics. I like it very much it has such a nice feeling.
