The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop '55 Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line. Representing the true magic of one of the very first Fender Strat's, the '55 offers some great vintage features and true fender mojo.
The Ash body is finished in a stunning Aged White Blonde Journeyman Relic. 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 AA Flame Maple neck features a 9.5" radius for a superb playing action without any choking. The 10/56 V profile and 21 6105 frets offers a really comfortable playing experience.
The defining feature is the trio of hand wound 55 Strat Low G Alnico 3 single coils. Delivering a premium Strat tone, these have a great response and exceptional definition. We always try our best to cater for our left handed friends and this guitar certainly doesn't disappoint!
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
