The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop '60 NOS Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line. We always try our best to keep a great range of guitars for our left handed friends, this is certainly something pretty special.
The lightweight Alder body is finished in a Vibrant 3-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 1960 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The Quartersawn Roasted Maple neck features a 9.5"-12" compound radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. The '60s style oval C shape and 22 frets (6105 - Tall) offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the satin finish feels great underhand.
With a duo of handwound Fender 60s 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. This one is a real powerhouse though; with an EVH Wolfgang zebra humbucker at the bridge you get unfiltered power and even greater tonal possibilities!
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
