The New Fender Custom Shop 2015 Maple Top American Custom Stratocaster® takes the quintessential Fender electric guitar and decks it out with knockout appointments that make it a dazzling performer. The two-piece lightweight ash body is sculpted with deep '57-style contours for remarkable playing comfort, with a gorgeous two-piece book-matched AAA flame maple top.
This American Custom Strat is in their Sapphire Blue finish with an NOS treatment that evokes the look of a brand-new instrument in its original model year. Singing Strat sparkle comes from hand-wired '69 Stratocaster single-coil neck and middle pickups (middle pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity) and a custom Shaw-Bucker bridge pickup.
Other premium features include an AAA flame maple neck with "large C" profile and '57-style small headstock, fast compound-radius (9.5"-12") Rosewood fingerboard with bone nut and 22 narrow jumbo frets, five-way pickup switch, three-ply 11-hole parchment pickguard with countersunk pickup- and switch-mounting holes, vintage white control knobs and switch tip; custom deluxe tremolo bridge, and Elite chrome tuners with pearl buttons. Includes black textured vinyl hard-shell case.
This guitar also features a hand buffed Satin Finish on the back of the neck for maximum playing comfort.
