About This Listing

Overview by GAK

Crafted by the artisan luthiers at the Fender Custom Shop, this Stratocaster combines a classic '50s model with modern upgrades. Made with the finest tonewoods and materials, this top-tier Strat will make an excellent addition to your collection.

Classic Feel & Sound

Using a '56 Strat as its base, this is a vintage instrument at its core. This is bolstered by the 1-piece Quarter Sawn Maple neck, which features an old-school 10/56 V profile. This neck allows smooth chording and effortless bending by starting as a V at the nut, then rounding out towards the body. The jumbo 6100 frets add robustness to this guitar’s tone and make expressive bends a breeze.

The 2-piece Ash body provides a resonant tone that beautifully balances low-end definition with crystalline trebles. The particular piece of Ash that was used to construct this Strat was specially chosen for its light weight.

Gorgeous Worn-In Look

Featuring the meticulous Heavy Relic treatment, every aspect of the Stratocaster has been carefully treated to give it the timeless look of a battle-hardened workhorse. An appealing aspect of the Heavy Relic’ing is how the neck is treated, giving it that worn-in, satin-smooth feel that only a well-played neck can provide.

Incredible Strat Tone

Equipped with a trio of premium pickups, this has a distinct sound of its own. The neck and middle feature a '58 Strat & Fat '50s respectively, allowing you to pull off those crisp, vintage Strat tones with ease. The bridge is loaded with a red hot Texas Special, which is perfect for when you want to kick things up a notch. When used in combination with the Modern Strat Wiring, you have a world of delicious Strat sounds at your fingertips.

Modern Reliability

Whilst this Strat is decidedly '50s at its heart, it benefits from the ’s incredible build-quality and premium components. The result is a guitar that is both authentically vintage and as reliable as a pro-grade, modern instrument.

Combining a sophisticated '50s foundation with choice pickups and slick playability, this Custom Shop Stratocaster more than lives up to its storied legacy. It’s a fantastic choice if you’re craving a “golden era” Strat.
