Amazing

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '56 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

The feel, finish, and sound on this guitar are perfect. The tone that this guitar has is beautiful around the board, and I would highly recommend its purchase. The pickups are beautiful, and the thinskin finish is nice. The guitar can play any number of styles, and feels perfect in my hands when I pick it up. It is definitely worth the high price if you want a quality instrument.

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '56 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

I own 9 strats mostly custom shop. I've brought one of these in 2000. It is an amazing guitar with that wonderful strat bell sound. The clean sounds are the best I've had from a strat & the crunchier solo sounds makes you smile. The neck is the larger 56 neck that I find really comfortable. I have a really low (1mm) action that can choke a little if you try & bend more than a tone above 15th fret. This is due to the 7.25 rad but again not a problem if you have the higher frets levelled a little. I always take at least 2 guitars on gigs & this is always one of them because I feel most comfortable with it. The other is something with a higher output (humbucker) for those heavier sounds. My only comment is that the neck is sometimes a bit sticky - a common problem with a gloss neck. This should not put you off the guitar plays like a dream. In fact I loved this guitar so much I've had 2 custom shop 56's & 1 custom shop masterbuilt 56 made but with a rosewood board & satin lacquer. The price of this guitar is good & not expensive. You get what you pay for - quality materials & manufacture & playability. If you like the slightly bigger necks & that strat chime you will love it.
