Fender Custom Shop '56 LTD Fat Roasted Strat

Fender Custom Shop


This Strat will be going home with one on the hunt...the hunt for a scorching hot tone that is. The fellas at the custom shop have built a racehorse with this monster and we cannot wait to get her in the hands of her new owner.

How hot do you think the Limited Edition Relic ’56 Fat Roasted Strat is going to sound? It’s tone is on fire, thanks to roasted maple neck and roasted alder body with Relic lacquer finish, matched to hand-wound Fat 60s Strat pickups with Fat 50s wiring as the special sauce. This wiring offers bold tone with transparent bloom while reducing treble loss when adjusting the instrument’s volume. It also smooths the control tapers, avoiding the typical hotspots when adjusting your volume or tone.

Other features include Closet Classic Hardware, a AA birdseye maple neck with “10/56 ‘V’”-shaped profile, 9.5” radius fingerboard, 21 6100 jumbo frets, gold 8-hole pickguard and American Vintage six-point synchronized tremolo. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
