Empire Music Special Run #16
The wood for this Fender Custom Shop Artisan guitar was hand-selected at the Fender Custom Shop Factory by Empire Music Owner Joe Ravita. Each top was inspected by hand and selected from Fender's entire stock of wood. These tops represent the best that Fender has to offer. Empire Music is proud to offer these special instruments.
The Artisan series is built to spotlight fine woods with distinctive figures and hand-rubbed oil finishes. Artisan series instruments are also outfitted with a wealth of special appointments and features that contribute to their striking sound and style.
