The American Custom Stratocaster is a gorgeous looking guitar that finds the Fender Custom Shop folding in some decidedly "boutique" specs to the classic Strat design.
Why We Love This
If you're looking for a new Strat but are looking for one that might be a smidge more modern-leaning with its specs, but doesn't go too far in that direction? You'll find a lot to love in this stunning American Custom Strat.
Transcending classic design elements with eye-catching appeal, the American Custom Stratocaster draws the most discerning players as the embodiment of elegance and perfectly alluring playability. An NOS lacquer finish lets the two-piece select ash body breath and resonate with each note. The one-piece 3A roasted flame maple neck has a 10/56 “V” profile, 9.5” radius and 22 narrow tall (6105) frets for exceptionally comfortable play in all registers.
Custom Shop hand-wound ’64 pickups (with reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) are connected to a five-way switch and Fat ’50s wiring for strong tone with transparent bloom on each note. Other features include a single-ply gold anodized aluminum pickguard, Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, Sperzel die-cast tuning machines with white pearloid buttons, bone nut and American Standard string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
