OVERVIEW

A glorious celebration of the great guitar's first year.

This special guitar honors the Stratocaster's very first model year and is finely crafted with a rich selection of features and appointments, in addition to a New-Old-Stock treatment that creates the effect of a well-preserved, yet vintage instrument.

The one-piece ash body is wonderfully light and responsive. It bares a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in a choice of colors that don't inhibit in any way the body's natural brightness or resonance.

The one-piece quartersawn maple neck has a wonderfully comfortable 1954 "U"-shaped profile and tinted lacquer finish. The maple fingerboard has a 9.5" radius, slightly flatter than the original, and twenty-one 6105 frets for smooth modern playability.

Three 1954 single-coil Stratocaster pickups deliver a singing original-era voice. They're not overwound and have just the right amount of response to capture all the gorgeous tone that the ash body and maple neck produce. A 5-way switch, instead of the original 3-way, is added to this vintage recreation, bringing the mixed-pickup settings that Strat players rely on.

Other features include a single-ply white pickguard, synchronized tremolo bridge with six "patent pending" saddles and serial number-stamped trem plate (a special 1954 touch), vintage-style tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. The guitar comes in a tweed "center-pocket" case with Stratocaster 60th Anniversary embroidery and an included 60th Anniversary commemorative book.

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop 1954 NOS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    bought this on sale - it wasn't on my 'want list' but i couldn't resist the great price - such a great guitar: the finish is outstanding - amazing feel and playability. i purchased the black version, and it is an instant classic. the neck is the best feature of the guitar, nice size and very smooth the nitro finish is very thin and not too sticky. case candy is a plus (although i am not a big fan of the custom shop strap - why so long?) -

    any how, this is one fine guitar, if i had the money i would buy one in every color available. might be time for a second mortgage.
