Fender Custom Shop MVP Series 1960 Stratocaster NOS
Fender Custom Shop 1960 Stratocaster NOS
Master Vintage Player's Series - Now available Team Built!
The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 60 Stratocaster NOS 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 60s Strat specs and has a very special, New Old Stock (NOS) finish package to provide the ultimate tone and feel! Thin, hard, nitrocellulose lacquer on the body along wiith a mint pickgaurd and aged white plastic parts gives these instruments a rich, elegant look while the gunstock oil finish on the back of the neck provides a silky smooth feel- all while allowing the wood to breathe and age gracefully.
Another nifty feature is the S-1 switch hidden discretely in the center of the volume knob. When activated this puts the neck / bridge pickup combination at your fingertips for all those Jimmy Page / Ritchie Blackmore type tones. Even a bit of Tele flavor. Of course all the classic Stratocaster sounds you know and love are still there too. Right where they should be.
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. These guitars also have and ultra-comfy, Oval C neck profile custom carved to our specs from Quartersawn Maple with a Rosewood fingerboard.
I tried to think of everything. But if there are any specs you would like to see different or in addition to what we have here, as usual, we are always happy to special order the Custom Shop Fender electric guitar of your dreams. (There is a custom quote guide and more details below)
