With 7.25" to 9.5" Vintage Compound Radius fingerboard and premium Ash body build with trio of hand wound CS pickups and lovely Wide Fade Sunburst Nitrocellulose finishing. This Gorgeous Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 55 Strat was purchased from us by its original owner a few years ago and its just been part exchanged back. Its previous owner has looked after it well but it has played and has a few minor marks on the body and a little chip on the headstock. All in all we would describe it as being in good pre owned condition and offering excellent tonal character on a premium Ash body Custom Shop build. Its 55' Strat pickups sound stunning and the 54 U neck is chunky but very comfy in the hand. A real cracker. It comes with the Custom Shop Case and some case candy.
Read on to find out a bit more behind this guitars influences and design - In the formative years following the Stratocaster's ground breaking debut in 1954, it saw slight tweaks and modifications that helped firmly establish its legacy as the finest electric guitar ever made. The Vintage Custom 1955 Stratocaster has some cool, rare features that we feel represent the best of the origins of the Strat® and gives you a glimpse into the innovations that were crucial in its development. The NOS flash-coat lacquer finish lets the guitar breathe and shows some of the natural grain through its wide-fade 2-Color Sunburst finish. The neck features a vintage 7.25"-9.5" compound radius, which we found on some rare examples, giving it a unique feel even among vintage-inspired models. It also features medium vintage frets, which are slightly larger than standard vintage size and very comfortable to play.Weight: 7lbs 6oz - SN: R94232Model 9235000560
