Overview

The Fender Custom Shop Vintage Pro 1956 Stratocaster NOS Electric Guitar is crafted with a select alder body (premium ash on 2-color sunburst). The Strat's maple neck has a '57 style soft V-shape with a 21-fret maple fretboard, a flatter 9.5" radius, and taller 6105 frets for easier bending.

Other outstanding Vintage Pro appointments include a gold anodized pickguard, Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuning machines, and an American vintage-style synchronized tremolo. 3 Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s single-coil pickups offer a range of tones suitable for all styles of music. Fender includes a hardshell Stratocaster case, strap, cable, and a certificate of authenticity with the NOS 1956 Vintage Pro Strat.

Part of the Fender Custom shop New Old Stock (NOS) collection, the Vintage Pro 1956 Stratocaster is built using the original tooling and production techniques of the '50s era. It is as if the Vintage Pro Strat had been discovered after spending years in a warehouse unplayed bearing little or no signs of age or wear.
