The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop '57 NOS Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
The lightweight Alder body is finished in a classic 2-Tone Sunburst 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 1957 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The Quartersawn Maple neck features a 10" radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. The mid '60s oval C shape and 21 frets offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the satin finish feels great underhand.
With a trio of handwound Fender 50s pickups it delivers all the sweeping, versatile tones you would expect from a Strat. Rich and smooth, it's a premium Stratocaster tone.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
