Fender Custom Shop

Description

Seventy-five years ago, the Fender Stratocaster forever changed the musical landscape with beauty, function and innovation all coalescing into one curvaceously artistic workhorse. The Strat has become synonymous with the term electric guitar and has inspired countless new playing styles and even and new genres altogether. The Fender Custom Shop 75th Anniversary Stratocaster celebrates this legacy with a limited-edition Strat based on the original design.

The two-piece select alder body is finished in a decadent “Diamond Pearl” nitrocellulose lacquer. The lightly tinted quartersawn 5A figured birdseye maple neck has a ’60 “oval C” profile and is topped with a round-lam rosewood fingerboard with narrow tall frets, mother-of-pearl face dots and cubic zirconia side dots. The eight-hole gold anodized pickguard holds three hand-wound Fat ’60s pickups (with reverse-wound/reverse-polarity in the middle), five-way switching and Fat ’50s Strat wiring for powerful tone with transparent bloom. Additional features include a Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines with pearl buttons, a bone nut and “wing” string tree with metal spacer. A deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity are also included.
