Fender's Custom Shop 1957 Time Capsule Stratocaster hearkens back to the heart of Fender's Golden Age, when their design and execution was first hitting its prime. It comes fully-loaded with a set of three hand-wound '57 Stratocaster single-coil pickups that combine with modern five-way switching to put a wealth of classic tones at your disposal. Faithful to and inspired by many original design elements, it is also packed with a full roster of authentic vintage appointments, including a '57 soft "V" maple neck, Medium Vintage / 47095 frets, Closet Classic hardware, and vintage-style tuning machines. It also features an exceptionally comfortable 7.25” to 9.5” compound radius fingerboard, making playability top-notch no matter what register you’re playing in. The combination of its deeply-contoured alder body and flash coat lacquer finish also provides the perfect blend of resonance and sustain, making it an excellent all-around tribute to the original designs, and provides familiar, full-bodied Strat tone time and again. If you’re a lefty and are looking for a great Stratocaster, then look no further than this stellar Fender Custom Shop piece.
