Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1959 Stratocaster – Chocolate 3-Color Sunburst

Serial Number: R98545

1959 was a pivotal year in the annals of Stratocaster history. It was the first year that modern features, such as rosewood fingerboards and the now-iconic 3-Color Sunburst finish made their initial appearance. The Vintage Custom 1959 Stratocaster sports both a slab rosewood fingerboard and a sumptuous chocolate 3-Color Sunburst finish, as well as some other cool and rare features from the Stratocaster’s formative years. The flash-coat lacquer finish lets the guitar breathe more freely and organically for singing sustain and warm tone. The neck features a vintage 7.25″-9.5″ compound radius, which we found on some rare examples, giving it a unique feel even among vintage-inspired models. It also features medium vintage frets, which are slightly larger than regular vintage and very comfortable to play.

Other features found on this guitar include a 2-piece select alder body, tinted rift-sawn maple neck with ’59 “C”-shaped neck profile, 21 medium vintage frets, hand-wound ’59 Strat single-coil pickups, 5-way switch, vintage wiring, 3-ply mint green nitrocellulose pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, bone nut, wing string tree and vintage-style tuning machines.

The Vintage Custom 1959 Stratocaster is the legendary guitar you know and love infused with ’59 mojo. Includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
