A Sweetwater Special Closet Classic Strat!The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster gives you the vibe of a mint-condition vintage Strat - but with modern playability and features. This axe may look right out of the mid-'50s, but it sports a supremely playable 9.5" radius and 6105 frets on its '57-style soft "V" maple neck. A trio of Custom Shop single-coil pickups serve up legendary spank and sparkle, with sweet dynamic response. With classic Fender tone and a vintage look too, the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster will rock your world.
Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster at a Glance:
The Closet Classic treatment creates a distinctive-looking Strat
Fender Custom Shop's Closet Classic treatment creates instruments that are spittin' images of the originals. Without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamps, you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish the Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster from the real deal. With a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish that gives the guitar a timeless, classic look, this axe looks like it's been gently aging inside its case in a closet for 60 years. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '50s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful, they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities - so your Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster sounds every bit as wicked as it looks!
'50s Strat pickups serve up period-correct Strat tones
The Fender Custom Shop's Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster is loaded with Fender Custom Shop '50s Strat single-coils that deliver all the legendary spank, sparkle, chime, and chunk of an original mid-'50s Strat.
The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster looks totally vintage, and it plays like butter. If you savor the feel of a played-in guitar with perfect fretwork and with spot-on intonation, we've got your axe right here! The Sweetwater Special '57 Stratocaster sports 6105 medium jumbo frets that let you shred and bend up high without fear of fretting out. And the mid-'60s-style soft "V" neck shape feels simply sublime. It's the best of old and new.
