The Fender Custom Shop always deliver guitars of the absolute highest quality and NAMM 2018 was THE place to be to check out this year's incredible new models. This Custom Shop Roasted '57 Stratocaster is a real winner!
The Alder body is finished in a stunning Aged Fiesta Red Journeyman. The Journeyman is a very lightly aged nitro finish; this gives the look and feel of a vintage guitar that has been lovingly cared for over the years. This finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other more modern finishes.
The tinted, Quartersawn Roasted Maple neck features a 9.5" radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. The '57 soft V profile and 21 medium jumbo frets offer a really comfortable playing experience.
Loaded with a trio of handwound '57 Strat single coils, you get a broad variation of tones. From clean sparkle to a raunchy growl, this guitar really is a players dream.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
