The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop '56 Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
A stunning Ash body is finished in a majestic Faded 2-Tone Sunburst Heavy Relic finish. Authentically aged, 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 1-peice Maple neck has a smooth finish and a really convincing relic job. With a 9.5" radius and 21 frets, the '56 Custom Shop Stratocaster also features a Large V neck shape. It's supremely comfortable and well balanced.
The defining feature is the signature Fat 50s singlecoil pickups. With a massive tone, these pickups are great for players who want the real hallmark of Fender tone, with huge sonic flexibility and fat, enhanced bass response, these little beauties are up there with the very finest pickups on the market. These pickups were handwound by Fender pickup master and legend Abigail Ybarra, she knows all the secrets to unlock the tonal potential of any guitar.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
