The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
The Alder body is finished in a classic 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 1959 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The rift sawn Maple neck has a smooth finish and a AAA-grade Rosewood fingerboard. With a 10" radius and 21 frets, the '59 Custom Shop Stratocaster also features a '60 Strat Oval C neck shape. It's supremely comfortable and well balanced.
The defining feature is the hand wound Fat ‘50s singlecoil pickups. These pickups were wound by Fender Custom Shop pickup guru Josefina Campos. Josefina was apprentice to the legendary Abi Ybarra and knows the secrets to unlock the tonal potential of any guitar.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
This guitar is used and does show a few minor signs of use. There is some light bucklers to the rear as well as some very small surface marking. Nothing out of the ordinary for a used guitar though. Check our studio shots for further details.
