Fender Custom Shop MVP 1956 Stratocaster Heavy Relic
Masterbuilt Greg Fessler
Dealer Select Master Vintage Player Series!
MVP Series Strats and Teles are the Ultimate Relic electric guitars
The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 1950s Stratocaster Heavy Relic is part of the Dealer Select Master Vintage Players Serie (MVP) Limited Edition, 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-distressed, Heavy Relic finish package designed to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! Another nifty feature is the push button switch hidden discreetly 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. A set of Custom Shop Hand Wound Master Design Limited pickups provide plenty of spank, twang and sparkle with just enough extra beef to keep things sounding meaty.
These Fender Custom Shop Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, but they play like a dream. The neck is designed for comfort with a custom 10/56 Soft "V" profile, and carved from a solid piece of quarter-sawn Maple for the utmost in stability and tone. 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. Slick!
