Description

1959 saw the advent of several important feature changes to the Stratocaster® including a slab rosewood fingerboard with clay position dots, a three-ply mint green pickguard with 8, 9 or 10 screws depending on the month it was built, and a metal spacer added to the string tree. This hardtail version would have been on the rare side, which ups the collectability and cool factors. This guitar features a hand-selected two-piece alder body and a rift-sawn maple neck with a 1959 “D” profile, a vintage compound-radius (7.25” – 9.5”) rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium vintage frets.

Hand-wound 1959 Strat pickups are wired to a vintage ’59 control assembly and five-way switch. Other features include Closet Classic hardware, three-ply eight-hole mint green pickguard, vintage-style hardtail bridge with patent pending saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Available in Faded Aged Sonic Blue and Chocolate Three-Color Sunburst finishes. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

VINTAGE CUSTOM

Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom series instruments represent early, almost prototypical, transitional and “first rev” versions of classic Fender models before they were refined into their present-day form. Featuring a few subtle modifications for enhanced playability and tone, some models incorporate prototypical features that barely saw the light of day while others have rarely seen transitional parts combinations that may have been used during the instrument’s development.

All of the Vintage Custom models feature our “Time Capsule” aging package. Combining our original “No Buff” NOS Flash Coat Lacquer finish with Closet Classic hardware, the Time Capsule package grants these instruments the charming appearance, authentic sound and genuine mojo of an extremely lucky vintage find.
