The Ash Stratocaster. The guitar becomes electric.

It's almost an alchemical experience. Wood and wire finished and shaped, and all to accept a simple electric circuit. With it, a guitar becomes electric and, as Frank Zappa puts it, "the guitar can be the single most blasphemous device on the face of the earth" - "The disgusting stink of a too loud electric guitar; now that's my idea of a good time".
