Fender Custom Shop Custom Classic Stratocaster


Howdy!

Wow! I am afraid to play this guitar because I am afraid of sullying its pristine beauty. That does not happen very often.

Today we are looking at a stunning Fender Custom Classic Stratocaster, which is their Custom Shop’s version of the American Series Stratocaster. It is finished in Red Sparkle (a special order color) over its alder body, and it was completed in June 2011.

The neck is perfect -- really. It was carved from a tastefully-figured chunk of maple and has a polished satin urethane finish. It has a not too chunky C shape, a 9.5-inch fretboard radius and 22 medium jumbo frets that are finished very nicely. I have never had a more comfy neck on a Stratocaster.

The top shelf hardware is nickel/chrome plated, and includes Fender/Schaller sealed tuners with staggered posts and a 2-point synchronized tremolo with polished solid stainless steel saddles and a solid steel spring block. These deluxe parts seem heavier than normal, and are probably one of the reasons that this Strat comes in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces.

The electronics include 3 Modern Classic single-coil pickups, including a Hot Classic with a custom steel inductance plate at the bridge position. Whatever that means. What it means to me is that they have a warm Stratocaster tone with little noise, but can still have a lot of bite if needed (but are not brittle or nasty).

And, just look at this thing! Sparkle Red is to die for and I challenge you to find another guitar that looks this sexy and plays this well.

This guitar came with a really bitchin’ G&G case with the Fender Custom Shop logo embroidered under the lid. The Custom Shop also includes a nice wad of case candy, including a strap, strap locks, a nice cord, a polish cloth, manuals and the certificate of authenticity. I would expect no less, because these guitars are spendy with a list price of 2452 bucks, and a street price of $1999.

But, if you are interested, hit me up. I can do a bit better than the street price on this one…

Mahalo!

  1. "Hot Classic with a custom steel inductance plate at the bridge position."

    That is a nice marketing way of saying "Telecaster bridge pickup". The addition of which is one of the best things you can possibly do for your tone.

    Really pretty guitar, Rex. Maybe you should keep it.
