The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop '59 NOS Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line. We always try to keep a really great selection of guitars for our left handed friends and this one is a real peach!
The lightweight Alder body is finished in a Vibrant Olympic White 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 1959 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The Quartersawn Maple neck features a 7.25"-9.5" radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. The '66 Strat oval C shape and 21 frets (6105 - Tall) offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the satin finish feels great underhand. One really cool feature of this guitar is the hardtail bridge, no tremolo here and subsequently no back plate meaning a more resonant body!
With a trio of handwound Fender '60s 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!
