Fender Custom Shop 1956 Stratocaster Heavy Relic

Master Vintage Player's Series - MVP!

Custom Team Built electric guitar!

Light! Only 6.8 lbs!

The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 1956 Stratocaster Super Relic is part of the Master Vintage Players Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, built exclusively for Make'n Music in the Fender Custom Shop!!! These special instruments are custom designed to offer the Ultimate in Tone, Playability and Feel. Each guitar is hand-made to our specs in order to give the vibe and look of an actual vintage instrument, but with all the conveniences of a true modern player's piece.

This particular guitar is built to modified early 56 Strat specs and has a very special hand-dirstressed, Heavy Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! Another nifty feature is the S-1 switch hidden discretely in the center of the volume knob. When activated this will give you the neck / bridge pickup combination at your fingertips for all those Jimmy Page / Ritchie Blackmore type tones. Even a bit of Tele tone flavor. Of course all the classic Stratocaster tones you know and love are still there too. Right where they should be. Custom Shop Fat 50's pickups provide plenty of spank, twang and sparkle wiith just enough extra beef to keep things sounding meaty.

The Fender Custom Shop Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, but they play like a dream. Easier chording, faster leads and no fretting out when you go for the big bends thanks to the 1&11/16" nut width, flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius and 6105 fret wire. Adjustments are a breeze too! The Truss Rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck for a tweak.

I feel like I'm hosting an infomercial here- But Wait! There's more!!! It's all true though. These are great guitars. You can't make this up! ... Did I mention these guitars also have the ultra-comfy, 10/56 Soft "V" neck profile carved from a solid piece of quarter-sawn Maple for the ultmost in stability and tone.
