Overview

The Fender Custom Shop 1957 Stratocaster Relic Masterbuilt Electric Guitar is made by the best luthiers in the business. It has the unique combination of features only available in 1957 and was carefully treated to create the aura of a guitar that was played over the years.

This '50s Strat has been given Fender's "New Old Stock" (NOS) treatment”built (from original tooling) as if bought new in the '50s, surviving till today.

The body is alder with a black lacquer finish. The custom maple neck has a thin 10/56 "V" back shape and 9.5" radius for authentic vintage feel and vibe.

True Strat tone is produced via 3 Custom Shop hand-wound Strat fat '50s single-coil pickups, which can be adjusted with Fender's familiar 5-position switch, master volume, and 2 tone controls.

The Fender Custom Shop '1957 Stratocaster Relic Masterbuilt Electric Guitar is equipped with so many vintage style features and mojo, it will be both a dream come true and a dream to play for Fender connoisseurs.

Since 1987, the Fender Custom Shop has been a "dream factory," producing guitars that are to playing what Ferraris are to driving. The skilled craftsmen in Fender's Corona, Calif., Custom Shop are known worldwide for their artistry in making guitars that range from the fine to the fantastic. Whether it's building a new custom instrument from the ground up or modifying an existing one, their best is the best. Fender's finest is the world's finest.
