The flagship of Fender's production, instruments from the Custom Shop range are guitars and basses that meet the highest quality standards, be it in the wood selection, the pickups winding, the finishes or the overall build quality. This results in highly reliable instruments with inimitable sound, providing great playability.
Fender invented the classics, and when the Custom Shop reproduces them for those who were too young or not born enough at the time, it's serious business. This 58 Stratocaster is one of the most beautiful representations of them. As you open the case, the nobility of the woods and the quality of the finish dazzles the eye. And indeed, the alder is very, very resonant, and its lightness suggests that it has been dried for a long time.
The maple neck with maple fingerboard is deliciously varnished and the hand does not stick on it, which slides easily. The soft-V profile has that "petite" quality, so you never get tired when playing barré chords, and you can twirl leads without causing yourself too much trouble. The Hendrixian barré is therefore very easy to nail, which will delight those who master it, and make learning easier for those who still have a little trouble.
As for the Custom Shop Fat 50's pickups, they are pure marvels of attack-sensitivity and versatility. Depending on the position, they deliver a clear and brilliant, almost singing sound, or scratch the atmosphere in a pure rock fashion. The pots are effective and further increase their range. The "hum" is part of the legend... This wonder is delivered with a certificate of authenticity and accessories in a Custom Shop case.
