The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop ‘56 Stratocaster NOS is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
The lightweight Alder body is finished in a Vibrant Fiesta Red nitro lacquer, period correct, 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 finishes. The NOS finish gives the appearance of a New Old Stock guitar, one that has been perfectly preserved since 1956 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The AA Birdseye Maple neck features a 9.5" radius for a superb playing action without any choking. With a nice V profile and 21 medium jumbo frets it offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the Birdseye fingerboard adds a real touch of luxury.
With a trio of Fender 50s Strat single coil pickups it delivers all the sweeping, versatile tones you would expect from a Strat. Rich and smooth, it's a premium Stratocaster tone. This is an ex-show guitar and has been on display, they may some very minor signs of use and this is reflected in the great price! Certificate of Authenticity to follow.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
