View Full Description
The Fender Custom Shop LTD '59 Stratocaster has been elegantly crafted from two-piece select alder and finished in journeyman relic treatment. This artificially-aged finish maintains its authentic appearance, giving it an aged cracked gloss, and the Olympic white colour an almost yellow hue.
As well as this vintage style body, the '59 Stratocaster also features a one-piece AAA flame maple neck with a 1959 C-shaped profile, for added authenticity. This maple neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard featuring 21 jumbo frets, and provides comfort as well as a great tone.
Additional vintage inspired features include, white relic control knobs, 8-hole 3-ply mint green relic pickguard, 6-saddle american vintage synchronized tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines. Overall, a truly unique looking guitar that boasts 1959 in all features.
As well as an authentic appearance, the '59 Stratocaster also boasts a vintage inspired sound reminiscent of the 1950's. Equipped with a powerful trio of high-output hand wound Custom Shop Ancho Poblano Stratocaster pickups , the '59 Stratocaster offers all the classic tones you would expect from Fender. Each pickup is precisely calibrated for its position, and the bridge and neck pickups feature special strat blender wiring which blends them together. The greasebucket master tone control circuit retains the full gain, and the tone saver treble bleed on the master volume control preserves tone at any setting. These vintage style pickups are controlled by a 5-position blade, which allows you to select many different combinations for the ultimate tone
