Classic Feel & Sound

The premium tonewoods are a particular highlight. The body is carved from a premium piece of vintage correct Ash, which delivers the strong, sweet resonance and singing sustain that Ash is renowned for.

Allowing you to get a super comfortable & authentic feeling of a vintage Stratocaster but with more modern playability due to the larger frets.
Gorgeous Worn-In Look
With its Custom Shop Journeyman Relic treatment, this '55 Stratocaster has been imparted with the endearing wear and tear of a well loved workhorse. Every part of this guitar, from the numerous finish checks to the oxidised hardware, has been meticulously and realistically aged by the Fender Custom Shop Team.
Vintage Strat Tone
Continuing on the true vintage theme this guitar is loaded with the Custom Shop Fat 50’s pickup set. Prepare to be blown away by the incredible variety of authentic tones at your fingertips.
This Stratocaster has been crafted by the incredible Fender Custom Shop luthiers, using only the finest materials and components.
