Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1955 Stratocaster NOS - Wide Fade 2 Color Sunburst


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


This Vintage Custom Stratocaster NOS hearkens back to 1955, and brings with it authentic '50s specs with a few modern improvements that set it apart from any Strat you've played before. Its body is finished with an NOS Flash Coat Lacquer that really allows the wood to breathe naturally, creating a lively, resonant feel and showing off the guitar’s Premium Ash. Its maple rift sawn neck has a 1954 “U” shape for a chunkier fretting-hand feel than your usual “C” shape. The 7.25” to 9.5” compound radius maple fingerboard and bone nut also contribute to an exceptional playing experience, and one that’s felt across all 21 Vintage 50085 frets. Plus, this Strat packs quite the tonal punch thanks to its three Custom Shop Hand-Wound '55 Single-Coil Strat pickups. Its tone is perfect for players looking to get that classic Strat chime! This guitar also comes with the familiar 5-way blade switching, eggshell control knobs/pickguard, and vintage-style tuners for an authentic ‘50s feel. Thanks to absolutely fantastic sound, vintage charm, period-accurate in-hand feel, and exceptional playability, Fender Custom Shop’s Vintage Custom Stratocaster NOS is one of their finest creations.
