  • Overview
    The instrument's resonant alder body is capped with a rippling quilt maple top and features a scalloped lower back bout and sculpted shredder's cut heel for comfortable and unencumbered upper-fret access. The bolt-on maple neck has a "caramelized" heat and drying treatment that makes it sound and feel much older, along with graphite reinforcement, satin finish on the back, Luminlay® side dots and a conveniently located heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel.

    Designed to deliver unrivaled playability, the 12"-16" compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard has a more pronounced curvature across its width near the nut for comfortable chording, and gradually flattens to a very slight curvature toward the upper frets for blazing fast solos and comfortable bends. The rolled fingerboard edges and 22 jumbo frets combine for even more enhanced comfort and high-performance playability.

    Given Sfogli's propensity to cut across genres ranging from progressive metal to jazz, he required extremely versatile and well-balanced pickups in an HSS configuration. He selected an EMG® '89 for the bridge, which houses separate preamps and coils to deliver that warm and powerful humbucker punch along with that bright and chiming single-coil sound. A pair of active EMG® SA single-coil pickups in the middle and neck positions bring even more of that unmistakable Strat® sound - bright and airy with rich low end. Tap into these expansive tonal options using the five-way blade pickup switch, tone control and volume control with push/pull coil splitting for the bridge pickup.

    A Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system provides excellent tuning stability throughout flutters and aggressive dive bombing.

    Sophistication personified, the Marco Sfogli Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR CM QM is clad in a gorgeous Transparent Purple Burst finish with black pickguard, skirted black Strat®-style control knobs, chrome hardware and a licensed Fender® Strat® headstock.
