Part of a limited run created for Fender's display at the Name show 2023, this Custom Shop '61 Strat is properly cool.
Equipped with three Fender Fat 60's single coil Strat pickups, this is a great chunky sounding guitar that provides an instant gateway to those early 60s Strat sounds. Its been set up really well too, the bridge is floating and super stable, perfect for those Jeff Beck inspired licks...
This guitar is practically brand new, and comes complete with the original brown case and all the usual Custom Shop paraphernalia.
All the right ingredients are here. Alder body, slab board, great pickups and a well set up vibrato system. This guitar really does not disappoint, and stands up incredibly well to our pre-CBS vintage stock...
