Custom Made

The Fender 1956 Strat is easily recognisable as one of the most iconic Fender guitars ever made, rising to popularity in the 50s thanks to artists like Hank Marvin and Buddy Holly. It features a classic '56 style spec but with a modern nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The Fender stratocaster in fiesta red isn't a standard model for Fender any more, which is why they are now custom made.

Classic Tone

With its 3-position blade selector switch, the custom shop strat offers players a variety of options to achieve the sound they want. From bright and twangy, to mellow and moody, the Fender guitar covers many colours on the tonal palette and its versatility makes it the perfect choice for many guitarists.

Classic Shape

The fiesta red guitar offers a very smooth, and comfortable feel. The contoured body and neck joint make it easy to hold and play, and its deep cutaway shape gives the player ready access to the entire fretboard. Finished in a new fiesta red shade, this guitar is a modern twist on an iconic design.

Unrivalled Quality and Craftsmanship

Since 1987, the skilled craftsmen in Fender's Corona, California ''dream factory'' have been producing guitars that are known worldwide for their artistry and unrivalled quality. Ranging from the fine to the fantastic, whether it's building a new custom instrument from the ground up or modifying an existing one, their best is the best. These wonderful instruments have been crafted for and with the input of the world's finest guitarists such as Clapton, Springsteen, Cray, Gilmour, Townshend, Wilko Johnson and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to name just a few.
