Fender Custom Shop 1955 Strat, Lush Closet Classic, 2 Tone Sunburst
For over 30 years the extraordinarily talented luthiers of the Fender Custom Shop have been providing the most illustrious guitar players of their day with their dream instruments.
While it may look and sound like an original-era Stratocaster right out of the box, this Custom Shop 1955 Stratocaster also incorporates a few modern touches. The lightweight select Alder body wears a beautiful 2 Tone Sunburst finish that radiates power with pure Fender tone. Additional appointments include: A maple Fingerboard w/ 7.25-9.50 radius,1.650 nut width, Medium Vintage fretwire, Hardtail Strat bridge, vintage tuning machines, modern strat wiring, & Handwound Tomatillo Singlecoils.
The trio of Tomatillo single-coil pickups share the same lineage as Fender's Ancho Poblano and El Diablo pickups. Clean-sounding, with plenty of chime, the Tomatillo pickups are crafted around alnico 2 magnets, simulating what an aged alnico 5 pickup from the ‘50s might sound like today.
