Very nice guitar

By Juan Arcos Jr.

from El Monte, CA

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

Wow this guitar has a sleek body, very comfortable for the player. The double-cutaway style is great for playing higher notes and the body still looks great, Also sounds so very good. the pickups gives the strat a rich Vintage tone . The finger board is very smooth and nice ether maple or rosewood it is very pricey but it's worty it.

Well Worth It!!

By Phil

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

This is an investment worth making. You will not know the true difference between a american standard and fender custom shop guitars until you play a guitar like this and realize it is worth the extra money for obvious reasons. The playability of this particular custom shop is incredible, I have to one with a rosewood neck and another with a maple neck. In my opinion go with the maple neck unless you prefer rosewood, it plays much smoother, but both guitars have a great "howl" factor. Any time while making a full step or even half step bend it screams with tone as if crying out with a beautiful sound. The reason I have two is because of the playability and that "howl" factor each guitar sits as number one and number in my collection everyday, even compared to any les pauls or other stratocasters. If you are a serious guitar player, play one of these guitars and you will know the wonder of the custom shop. It is a truly amazing instrument. The two I have our my sound and I wouldn't give them up for the world.

Fantastic Strat

By NoviceofMusic

from Manassas, VA

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

I had the chance to play this lovely guitar in the store, and I was sold right away. Sadly the price tag is between us. The finish had a nice gloss to it and would really bring out the color of the tri-burst I played, the pickups were at the right height to to maximize the sound of them. Great sounding pickups and an awesome neck. Little thin but smooth and easy to play. All around great guitar if you can get around the price tag.

First Custom Strat

By beachsocal

from Mira Loma, CA

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

I've had it a few weeks now, great guitar but overpriced for what it is. Play it thru a Fender amp and it really gets the Tommy Castro, SRV or Hendrix tone. The neck is totally awesome. It was delivered in perfect condition although you might need to lower the action just a tad. The only bummer is they included a cheap cord, you can pretty much just toss it in the garbage. No care kit either which was a surprise for such an expensive guitar. If you buy one, you'll love it especially if you play clasic rock, country and blues.

Amazing Guitar

By Coldshot

from North Carolina

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

Fender's Custom Shop '69 NOS is truly a great guitar. It's a guitar like this that makes you appreciate the things that can sometimes go unnoticed on less expensive guitars, but once upgraded make a huge difference. The neck is outstanding (mine is maple), the "thin skin" nitro finish looks great and the Custom Shop '69 pickups make this a great blues guitar.

Finally!

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

I can't believe how nice this guitar is. I shopped all over looking at every model strat available and after a year of searching I decided on the 69 strat. I own a 76 strat and this one is every bit and more guitar. This baby sings and is worth every penny I paid for it. If I had to do it all over however... I would.

Great Feel, priceless tone

By WhoaMan78345

from Moorpark, CA

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

I am in a stage band at school, and sometimes i jam with this other guy who has this guitar, and we both have to share an amp because there is only one spare, and let me tell you, his guitar blows my Les Paul away. The pickups deliver shimmering highs and great midrange tones. Anyways, i asked him if i could try it out and the first thing that came to my mind was the amazing feel. I would seriously consider buying this guitar just for the action and feel even if the tone wasn't dead on. basically, if you have the cash, get it, and you'll sound like jimi in no time, considering you know how to play.

You really do get what you pay for. This guitar is incredible. The feel, style, sounds, and playability from this guitar are outstanding to say the least. Beware, you will not want to put this guitar down once you start playing it.

Woah

By StratmanBaze

from Schaumburg, IL

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

Great Strat...it has everything a true rocker needs. Just the correct vibe of the late 60s with the correct shape, the only thing that makes you know it's not from the 60s is the date printed on it. Otherwise, you could probably fool someone into thinking it's from 1969...Fender did an awesome job right here.

Hendrix MACHINE!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Shop Time Machine Series '69 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar:

Ohmygosh! When I found out that Fender was making a '69 Strat re-issue. I just HAD to have one. The problem is that I'm only 11 and it's WAY out of my range. One of the reasons I love the 69 is Hendrix is one of my biggest influences. I'm alsoleft handed, so I'd flip it over. Just Crank it through A marshall and your set!
