Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 1956 Heavy Relic Shell Pink R118891


We haven't had a '56 Strat with a 10/56 "V" neck in our range for a while, which is actually a shame... it feels fantastic in the hand and a bit more powerful than the modern "V" profile without being bulky. Together with the worn 1 Pc. Maple Neck with it's wonderfully silky surface, the playability is truly a pleasure. A 9.5 profile was chosen as the neck radius and the 6105 frets are almost standard on our instruments. According to Fender, they are among the most popular choice for new frets on vintage guitars and they are also favored for our orders.

The compilation of the pickups goes back to an idea by Gernold Linke, former head of the German Custom Shop. Once played, you soon get the idea "This is the real McCoy!" - the sound fits in every position like the proverbial fist on the eye. The middle PU was chosen as the "Reversed Wound". Not 100% vintage-compliant, but this means that the output signal remains hum-free in pickup positions 2 & 4. Another small detail that we allow ourselves to deviate from the 1956 original is the missing string-tree on the headstock. In connection with the staggered tuners, the lack of detuning is significantly improved.

This masterpiece is rounded off by a fantastic aging. The very fine cracks in the nitro lacquer do not show up 100% in the photos, but are evidence of the attention to detail and dedication with which the employees in the Custom Shop approach their work. Guitars of this quality are probably the reason why the delivery time for team-built instruments has increased to 12 months.
