Fender Custom Shop Custom Special Trans Ash Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A trio of Custom Shop pickups - just what your tube amplifier has been begging for
  • Quartersawn maple neck adds strength and tonal intensity
A trio of Custom Shop pickups - just what your tube amplifier has been begging for

You get an amazing pickup combination in the Custom Special Trans Ash Stratocaster. A '69 single-coil at the neck gives you the warm, organic rhythm tones you'd expect, while a reverse-wound '69 in the middle lets you get hum-canceling tones when combined with the neck. A Master Design single-coil at the bridge makes your solos absolutely sing - or scream! These three pickups give you the foundation for rock, blues, funk, and just about anything else that begs for iconic Strat tones.

Quartersawn maple neck adds strength and tonal intensity

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the Fender Custom Shop Custom Special Trans Ash Stratocaster features a one-piece quartersawn maple neck and fretboard. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more rigid than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of the Custom Special Trans Ash Stratocaster's 6105 frets when you're navigating the fretboard. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 9.5" radius that strikes a great balance for rhythm and lead work.

Fender Custom Shop Custom Special Trans Ash Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Mid-'60s-style Stratocaster with premium Custom Shop pickups and construction
  • Quartersawn maple neck is more rigid and strong than plain-sawn necks
  • One-piece maple neck/fretboard enhances attack and definition in your tone
  • Three Custom Shop single-coil pickups serve up legendary Strat tones on demand
  • Middle pickup is reverse-wound for hum canceling when combined with the neck pickup
  • '65 "C" neck profile plays fast and smooth
