The Postmodern Stratocaster from Fender's Custom Shop is all about combining old-school Fender vibe with more modern refinements.
Why We Love This
Featuring a two-piece select alder body with contoured neck heel and deep ’57 contours, a rift-sawn maple neck featuring a '54 Soft V (.85"-.98") profile, a compound-radius (9.5”-12”) round-lam maple fingerboard, and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets, it embodies everything we love about a great Strat - a loud, open, resonant acoustic voice, lightweight/balanced, slinky playing feel, and fantastic amplified tones. Speaking of which....
...this stunning Aged/Faded Sage Green Strat features a trio of hand-would Dual Mag II pickups with a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup. These shop fave pickups deliver a well-balanced tone, shimmering clear highs and balanced rich lows, through “½ blender” wiring with a Greasebucket II circuit - this allows the bridge pickup to be blended in positions 1 and 2.
Other features include a five-way switch, three-ply parment/black/parchment pickguard, Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree.
