The Fender Custom Shop still makes them like they used to.
This unique edition of the Fender 1956 Stratocaster electric guitar has the Custom Shop NOS finish treatment in an exciting sea foam sparkle. It is an awesome reproduction of the classic '56 Stratocaster that features an alder body, 10/56 V-shaped maple neck, single-ply white pickguard and original spec pickups. Includes a tweed hardshell case.
Fender Custom Shop NOS (new old stock) guitars are built using the original tooling and production techniques of the era. They have a finish that makes the instrument seem as if the guitar was discovered in a warehouse after many years, never played and showing no signs of age or wear.
The 1956 Stratocaster NOS and other axes from the Time Machine series pay homage to specific years of some of Fenders classic designs. All are built to exacting specifications of their respective vintages, including body contours and radii, neck shape, fingerboard radius, pickups and electronics. Original materials, tooling and production techniques are employed wherever possible to maintain the integrity of these instruments. All Fender Time Machine guitars and basses are finished with 100 percent nitrocellulose lacquer.
