Fender Custom Shop

collapse expand iconDescription

Few guitars are as inspiring as a beat-up original-era Strat. There's just nothing like it. The Fender Custom Shop wanted to create a Thinline Stratocaster that would look, sound and play like a real workhorse; a truly battle-hardened beauty that had survived a lifetime of beer brawls and all-nighters.

The result is this gorgeously worn 1956 Thinline Stratocaster, built with power and action that perfectly match its battered heavy-relic look. It is a Custom Built, Namm limited edition guitar that is crafted for the thinline fan with features including one of the favorite neck shapes-a V-shaped 10/56 profile-plus a 9.5"-radius fingerboard for easier string bending, 21 6105 frets, and handwound pickups with a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup that produces humbucking "in-between" sounds. Includes case.
