1959 was a pivotal year in the annals of Stratocaster history. It was the first year that modern features, such as rosewood fingerboards and the now-iconic 3-Color Sunburst finish made their initial appearance. The Custom Shop-model Fender Vintage Custom 1959 Stratocaster sports all of these innovative appointments and more, complete with a sumptuous Chocolate 3-Color Sunburst finish and a 3-ply Mint Green pickguard, as well as some other cool and rare features from the Stratocaster's formative years.
The Vintage Custom 1959 Strat boasts a flash-coat lacquer finish that lets the guitar breathe more freely and organically, perfect for singing sustain and a warm tone, thanks to the two-piece select alder solidbody. A stunning tinted rift sawn maple neck with a '59 C-shape boasts a slab rosewood fingerboard, with a vintage compound radius, giving this guitar a unique feel even among vintage-inspired models. It also features medium vintage frets, which are slightly larger than regular vintage and very comfortable to play.
The utterly powerful and versatile trio of Custom Shop Hand-Wound '59 single-coil Strat pickups are controlled by onboard vintage wiring and a master volume, two tone controls and a five-way blade switch. Keeping your intonation in check and your tuning as stable as ever is the American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, and the headstock is complete with a bone nut, wing string tree and vintage-style tuning machines. The Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1959 Stratocaster is the legendary guitar you know and love infused with '59 mojo — ready for you now at Replay Guitar Exchange!
