Fender Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Heavy Relic body with Closet Classic hardware
  • Vintage '60s pickups deliver classic Strat tone

Heavy Relic body with Closet Classic hardware

As you can imagine, a true '59 Stratocaster would show signs of wear and tear, and this Fender Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster is finished to represent those years of playing. The worn finish on this guitar's body and neck will make you wonder if it really isn't a true vintage instrument. And this Strat's Closet Classic hardware shows just enough tarnish to make it feel broke in. This Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster is sure to please even the pickiest of guitar lovers.

Vintage '60s pickups deliver classic Strat tone

As much as it might resemble a museum piece, there's no doubt about it - this Fender Custom Shop solidbody electric guitar was made to be played. Not only that, but it's designed to give you the real sound of a vintage Stratocaster. That's why the Fender Custom Shop designed a special model of vintage-inspired pickups. These incredible pickups not only re-create the sound, but also the dynamic response an original vintage Strat. You simply won't find a more spot-on re-creation than this Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster.

TBX tone control and modern switching provide a full range of classic sounds

The original Strat had three single coil pickups, so it was able to produce sounds that no other guitar could deliver, particularly once players discovered they could lodge the three-position blade switch in those "in-between" positions to access neck / middle and bridge / middle pickup combinations. These were often erroneously referred to as the "out-of-phase" settings. This Fender Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster comes standard with a modern five-way blade switch, making it easy to access all the pickup combinations, but then adds a special active midrange boost on one tone control to give this guitar the extra "meat" you might expect from a Humbucker. In addition, the second tone knob functions as a standard Fender TBX master tone control, which can smoothly go from bright and glossy to dark and smoky by rolling off the highs!

Fender Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Heavy Relic body with Closet Classic hardware
  • Custom Shop-designed Vintage '60s pickups deliver classic Strat tone
  • Modern Strat wiring with 5-way pickup blade selector
  • TBX tone circuit provides a full range of classic sounds
