A 1969 Strat with a Custom Shop Twist!

The Fender Custom Shop '69 Stratocaster NOS solidbody electric guitar captures everything Fender was doing right in 1969... and then some. In many ways, this is the perfect guitar for anyone who ever wanted a '69 Strat that plays better than a real '69 Strat. That's because this '69 Stratocaster NOS gives you the spot-on look and sound of an original 1969 model, right down to a full set of faithfully recreated NOS gold hardware and lacquer finish. But on top of its classic U-shaped neck, there's a super-comfortable compound-radius fretboard, which makes the Fender Custom Shop '69 Stratocaster NOS an extremely fun guitar to play.

Fender Custom Shop '69 Stratocaster NOS Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Masterbuilt by Jason Smith at Fender's Custom Shop

Masterbuilt by Jason Smith at Fender's Custom Shop

All of the guitars that come from Fender's Custom Shop display the earmarks of perfectionism in every aspect of their construction - and this '69 Stratocaster NOS is no exception! What's more, this '69 Stratocaster NOS is the work of Fender's Jason Smith, the son of Fender R&D legend Dan Smith. You'll discover Jason's keen sense of detail in every note you play on this amazing instrument. Quite simply, the '69 Stratocaster NOS is one of the best-feeling and best-playing guitars you're likely to ever come across.

A spot-on 1969 Stratocaster at heart

Like every Fender Custom Shop NOS guitar, the '69 Stratocaster NOS was built to give you the spirit and essence of a legendary Fender model - in this case, a vintage 1969 Stratocaster. From its 2-piece alder body to the authentic U-shaped carve of its maple neck, to the particular cut of its pickguard, the '69 Stratocaster NOS gives you the exact look and feel of an original 1969 Strat. It even comes loaded with a trio of Custom Shop '69 Strat NOS pickups, which perfectly recreate the sound of a period '69 Strat.

Compound-radius fretboard adds a cool Custom Shop twist

Having been built in the Fender Custom Shop, the '69 Stratocaster NOS was able to pick up one cool perks you simply won't find on an original 1969 Strat: a compound radius fretboard. This 7.25" to 9.5" fretboard is rounder near the nut, which makes it easy to grab chords. As you go up the '69 Stratocaster NOS guitar's neck, the fretboard flattens out, making it easier to play single notes and giving you more room to bend at the higher frets. Once you get your hands on your '69 Stratocaster NOS, you'll wonder how you ever played anything else!
