The Fender Custom Shop always deliver guitars of the absolute highest quality and NAMM 2019 was THE place to be to check out this year's incredible new models. Hitting our store throughout 2019, these are the elite of Fender production.
The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Journeyman Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
A select Alder body is finished in a cracking Faded Aged Blue Ice Metallic finish. The Journeyman is a very lightly aged nitro finish; this gives the look and feel of a vintage guitar that has been lovingly cared for over the years. 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 more modern finishes.
The tinted Rift Sawn Maple neck has a smooth finish and a super tasty Rosewood fingerboard. With a 12" radius and 22 Medium Jumbo frets, this Custom Shop Stratocaster can handle anything you throw at it without even breaking a sweat. It's supremely comfortable and well balanced. The '60 style C profile takes this into another realm of comfort.
With a trio of hand wound Fender Custom Shop pickups it delivers all the sweeping, versatile tones you would expect from a Strat. With a Texas Special at the bridge, Fat '50 in the middle and a '69 at the bridge, this is a real premium Strat!
