We have just received this wonderful Ash body build Fender Custom Shop 1959 Stratocaster with Relic finish in traditional 3 Tone sunburst. A coming together of Custom Shop build quality and specifications with a classic 59 look and character with Rosewood fingerboard. This is a one off custom build Strat so offers players an individual instrument with upgraded features. The Ash body version has nitro relic finishing and is equipped with a set of astonishingly good sounding hand wound Custom Shop Texas Special pickups. A long list of other notable features will impress including quarter sawn Strat C profile neck with 9.5 radius fingerboard. If you are on the hunt for a wonderful Ash body relic Strat influenced by the 59 original builds then this guitar should be on your radar.
More about this 59 Strats design and history - 1959 was a year of transition for the venerable Strat. In May of ’59 we revised the way necks were made, switching from a one-piece maple neck to maple capped with a “slab” rosewood fingerboard. Fender also changed the pickguard, moving from 1-ply construction to the current three-ply material, and upped the number of screws from eight to 11, which also necessitated changing the body’s control route. These changes didn’t happen overnight; many guitars exist that show various combinations of these features, which makes them extremely rare and collectible. Reflecting these historic idiosyncrasies, the maple fingerboard model sports a 1-ply, 9-hole Parchment pickguard while the rosewood fingerboard model sports 3-ply, 10-hole Mint Green nitro pickguard.
