The Fender Custom Shop NOS Stratocaster is Masterbuilt by Yuriy Shishkov. A true work of art, this special Strat features vintage-style gold hardware and a gorgeous AAAA flame maple top over an alder body all tastefully given the New Old Stock treatment. Equally of note is the 1-piece rosewood neck and fretboard with its '60s C neck profile. Electronics include three Josephina Hand-Wound Fat '60s pickups housed in a gold anodized pickguard. Comes with black knobs and pickup covers, and a hardshell case.
From handcrafting many of his own woodworking tools to showcasing his world-class luthier skills and custom inlay work, Yuriy Shishkov is truly one of the last of the renaissance guitar builders. It was in the small confines of a root cellar in his hometown of Gomel in the former Soviet Union that Shishkov got his start building guitars for friends and colleagues.
When he arrived in the United States in 1990, Shishkov settled in the Chicago area and collaborated with a range of top artists, including late shredder Dimebag Darrell of Pantera, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, Nuno Bettencourt, Robin Zander of Cheap Trick and Paul Stanley of Kiss. Shishkov joined the Fender Custom Shop’s elite team of master builders in 2000.
