Fender Custom Shop MVP Series 1956 Stratocaster Relic - Black Pearl / Gold Anodized Pickguard - NEW!
Fender Custom Shop 1956 Stratocaster Relic
Master Vintage Player's Series - Teambuilt!!!
MVP Series Strats and Teles are the Ultimate Relic guitars
Modified '54 / '56 Strat Specs!
The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 1956 Stratocaster 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 '54 / '55 / '56 Strat specs and has a very special hand-distressed, Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear. Custom Shop Fat 50's pickups provide plenty of spank, twang and sparkle with just enough extra beef to keep things sounding meaty. Another nifty feature is the push button 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 a custom spec’d and ultra-comfy, 10/56 Soft "V" neck profile carved from a solid piece of quarter-sawn Maple for the utmost in stability and tone.
