Taking all of the amazing qualities that made this guitar a famous piece of music history, the Fender Custom Shop has painstakingly recreated the '56 Strat from the ground up to bring to the modern stage. The masterful craftsmanship of the Custom Shop Limited Edition Fender 1956 Stratocaster Hardtail Gold Hardware Relic Closet Classic resonates with every note — decorated in a Faded Aged 2-Tone Sunburst color with a parchment pickguard and a Relic finish that makes it seem like a guitar that's seen years on the road, along with unique golden Closet Classic hardware to match.

This Limited Edition model shows off a two-piece off-center ash solidbody with deep contours, finished in a flash lacquer coat that closely matches the finish of the past — with a relic'd visual to match. An 11/56 off-center V-profile rift sawn maple neck is attached, offering amazing playability and stunning good looks, with a matching fingerboard that boasts a set of twenty-one medium vintage frets hosting Micarta Black facedots.

The three hand-wound 11/56 Stratocaster single-coil pickups installed produce a massive variety of ripping Fender tones, shaped by a set of vintage Strat-style wiring all decorated in Closet Classic gold hardware that adds to the vintage aesthetic. The volume and two tone controls allow you to play around with the sound to find your ideal mix, along with a five-way blade switch to dial in your exact sound. The awesome hardtail vintage Strat bridge adds a unique flavor of Stratocaster power, giving not only a rare style but a definitive construction that holds a perfect stability.
