'55 Bone Tone Stratocaster

The Limited Edition ’55 Bone Tone Strat harkens back to an archetypal year for the Strat, with modified vintage-style features, gold hardware and added custom appointments. The two-piece ash body wears a relic lacquer finish, while the tinted one-piece 2A flame maple neck has a comfortable ’54 Strat “soft V” profile, vintage compound-radius fingerboard (7.25”-9.5”) and 21 narrow tall frets.

Master designed hand-wound Bone Tone pickups provide plenty of headroom with fewer turns of heavy formvar wire, beveled alnico 2 magnets and ’54 pickup covers. The five-way switch is connected to “½ blender” wiring, which lets the neck pickup be blended in positions 1 and 2. Other features include an eight-hole gold anodized pickguard, Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and a vintage-style disc string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

A Fender Custom Shop instrument is extraordinary. You know it when you play one—it’s definitely more than the sum of its parts. It’s filled with intangible, electrifying elements that add a new dimension to your playing experience. It’s as if the instrument itself is imbued with history, alive with the spirit of the place where it was built and the devotion of those who crafted it.

The Custom Shop is home to Fender’s most skilled and talented builders. It’s a bustling, noisy and creatively volcanic place that re-earns its nickname—the Dream Factory—every day. Custom Shop builders are completely dedicated to their art—part craftsman, part artist, part music fan and, more often than not, part mad scientist. They’re the best at what they do, and they pour all of their passion, hard-earned knowledge and skill into every instrument they build. It’s no ordinary place, and the creations that come from it are no ordinary instruments. This is Fender Custom Shop.

Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value.
