The Fender Custom Shop always deliver guitars of the absolute highest quality and NAMM 2018 is THE place to be to check out this year’s incredible new models. Hitting our store throughout 2018, these are the elite of Fender production.
The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1959 Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
The 2-piece Alder body is finished in a super sweet Chocolate 3-Tone Sunburst NOS flash coat lacquer. The NOS finish gives the appearance of a New Old Stock guitar, one that has been perfectly preserved since 1955 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The tinted, rift sawn Maple neck features a 7.25” - 9.5" compound radius, a ’59 C profile and 21 frets, perfect for a wide range of playing styles, it offers a really comfortable playing experience. The Slab Rosewood fingerboard is delicious and complements the colour beautifully.
With a trio of handwound Fender ‘59 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. The vintage wiring gives you a real old school vibe, it doesn’t just look the part, it sounds it too.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
