The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop Late '59 Stratocaster relic is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
A traditional Alder body is finished in the classic Chocolate 3-Tone Sunburst, one of Fender's most iconic finishes, it's a real beauty! Authentically aged, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. The thin nitro finish also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively.
The rift sawn Maple neck has a smooth finish and an AAA grade Rosewood fingerboard. With a 9.5" radius and 21 6100 frets, the late '59 Custom Shop Stratocaster can handle anything you throw at it without even breaking a sweat; it's supremely comfortable and well balanced. The '59 Esquire C profile is a joy to play and offers a great platform for both rhythm and lead playing.
With a trio of hand wound Fender Custom Shop '60s pickups, including Fat 60s at the neck and bridge, it delivers all the sweeping, versatile tones you would expect from a Strat. With a crisp harmonic content and a really refined and precise tone, the Fat '60s are some of the most versatile single coils around, a great choice for this guitar!
Supplied with a Fender Custom Shop hard case, this is a real sweet example of Custom Shop quality.
