Overview by GAK

This absolute stunner of a Strat was lovingly crafted by the artisan luthiers at the Fender Custom Shop. Boasting an impressive spec that seamlessly combines the best of vintage and modern, once you’ve picked up this Strat, you won’t want to put it down.

Classic Feel & Sound

This particular Custom Shop Stratocaster is based on a classic '60 model, giving it an authentic “golden era” foundation. The Quarter Sawn Maple neck is adorned with a gorgeous AAA Dark Rosewood fretboard. The jumbo 6100 frets facilitate effortless bending and provide a robust tone. The comfortable '65 Strat C profile is a great all-round neck that’s suitable for a wide variety of playing styles.

The body is constructed from Alder, which provides this guitar with a sweet sustain, note clarity and balanced resonance across the frequency spectrum.

Gorgeous Worn-In Look

This Stratocaster features the Custom Shop’s Relic treatment, which gives it the timeless look of a well-played instrument. From the headstock to the bridge, every aspect of this Strat has been meticulously aged.

Iconic Strat Tone

Enhancing this Stratocaster’s natural voice is a trio of fantastic Handwound Fat Strat '60s single-coils. These pickups combine warmth with beautiful, glassy note articulation. Combined with the Modern Strat Wiring, this guitar can pull off all the quintessential Strat tones with ease. This Strat’s pickups are constructed with the Reverse Wound/Reverse Polarity technique, which cancels out hum.

Modern Reliability

Whilst it would be easy to mistake this Custom Shop Stratocaster for a vintage guitar (which tends to require a lot of care & maintenance), its impeccable craftsmanship and premium components mean it’s as rock-solid and dependable as a modern one. If you need to bring an authentic vintage sound to your studio session or performance, this Strat won’t let you down!

The Fender Custom Shop has done it again, crafting an amazing Stratocaster that more than lives up to its legacy. If you need a Strat with a vintage sound and effortless playability, this is definitely one to take home.
