Description

In 1959, the Fender Stratocaster saw numerous updates, including the implementation of a slab rosewood fingerboard, clay position dots, a 3-ply mint pickguard, and a metal spacer on the string tree. Fewer hardtail versions were produced, making them a rare find nowadays. But thanks to the expert artisans at the Fender Custom Shop, guitarists can experience this incredible model all over again with the Vintage Custom '59 Hardtail Stratocaster. If you've been looking for a mint-condition, old-school Strat without the vintage markup, this one's for you!

This beauty features a 2-piece select alder body with a Time Capsule finish package, giving it the look of a premium Strat fresh from the Fender factory. But style isn't all this axe has to offer - there's plenty of substance. From its '59 "D" shaped rift-sawn maple neck to its vintage compound-radius (7.25" - 9.5") rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium vintage frets, this guitar plays with a delightfully comfortable feel.

The Vintage Custom '59 Hardtail Stratocaster comes equipped with a set of hand-wound '59 Stratocaster pickups that dish out a bright, spankin' tone like nothing you've heard before. These single-coils have the perfect balance of smoothness and bite, allowing players to shine through in a dense mix without sounding sharp or brittle. Seriously, these pups check all the boxes, delivering deep, decadent lows, slightly scooped mids, and clear, articulate highs.

A phenomenal guitar built by the master craftsmen in Fender's Custom Shop, this Vintage Custom '59 Hardtail Stratocaster is an excellent choice for collectors and gigging guitarists alike. Reach out today for more information about this outstanding Fender!
