Fender Custom Shop 1956 Stratocaster NOS 2008 – White with Nitro coating

$ 3199.00

Custom shop 1956 Strat NOS in near mint condition. I am the original owner. Ash body (like they made in 56) with maple neck cut in light V shape, the 10/56 neck. 7.25” neck radius with vintage frets. Very comfortable. Birthday 10/21/2008 per COA. Hand wound pickups made by one of the original Fender craftswomen. (This is a major reason why this guitar sounds so great.) Wired for individual pickups on 3 way switch (like the originals) but came with a 5 way switch in case. Comes with the whammy bar and bridge cover. I removed one of the tremolo springs to make the bridge more lively (Clapton trick). Spring is included in case.

This girl sings! from Buddy Holly bright bridge pup to full and bassy neck pup. Lovely tone. Clear as a bell with killer string definition. very low action with no string buzzing. beautifully set up. the only imperfections are a few nitro finish cracks that the guitar came with new. It looks like the finish got a temperature shock. The few cracks around the guitar’s waist never bothered me as I’ve owned lots of vintage guitars that had nitro cracks and thought they made it look more vintage. Other than that she is mint. All case candy included. Case is mint. She has spent her life in climate controlled storage with proper humidity, only coming out for recording. Never gigged. True Custom Shop work. You will not be disappointed.
