Ask any musician what today's biggest, best and most recognizable electric guitar brands are and their first answer will most likely be Fender. Built on the principles of hard work and innovation, Fender has been a stand-out in the electric guitar business since 1946. In 1987, they took their production one step further with the Fender Custom Shop. Known worldwide for their artistry in making guitars that are the epitome of sound and style, Fender Custom Shop electric guitars are the instrument of choice for world renowned artists like Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend and Jeff Beck.
Many incredible musicians have had the privilege of working with Fender on a custom shop electric guitar. For example, the Custom Shop Artist Series Eric Clapton Stratocaster Electric Guitar is modeled to the exact specifications of Clapton's guitars and are even made by the same craftsmen who make his own personal axes. Featuring a comfortable V-neck shape, noiseless pickups, a blocked original vintage synchronized tremolo bridge and master TBX tone control, there's nothing telling what you can aspire to after strapping on this beauty.
Now for those who love the smooth sounds of the '60s, the Fender Custom Shop 1960 Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar is a great choice. The alder body produces a strong, full-bodied sound characterized by beefy mids and excellent lows. It also boasts 1960 Stratocaster pickups with 5-way switching, a custom pickguard and sleek relic vintage hardware. While its relic finish treatment gives it the look of a vintage six-string, its set-up and playability is all new, and ready to rock as soon as you plug it in.
When you're ready to unleash a fury of sound, Fender is ready for you. Musicians have been relying on Fender for decades, and you can be certain that when you pick up one of their custom shop electric guitars, you're getting the very best in quality, design, sound.
