True to its heritage with an alder body, maple neck and master-designed pickups.

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 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 model, built with power and action that perfectly match its battered heavy-relic look. It is a guitar that is built for the player to lean into like nobody's business, 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 Master Designed pickups with a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup that produces humbucking "in-between" sounds. Includes case.

  • Fender Custom Shop heavy relic treatment
  • Alder body with 1-piece maple neck
  • Large V neck profile
  • Master-designed pickups
  • Nickel hardware and vintage-style synchronized tremolo
  • Includes case

Strap on some instant mojo. Order today.
