Fender Custom Shop American Custom Strat Ebony Transparent NOS
Take a classic Fender Stratocaster®, deck it out customized player-centric features, the finest hand-selected figured woods and custom hand-wound pickups, and you have the American Custom Stratocaster. The two-piece select ash body features deep contours, a contoured neck heel and an NOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish. All control and pickup routes are shielded and grounded for reduced electromagnetic interference. The one-piece 3A birdseye maple neck has a 1960 oval “C” profile and bi-flex truss rod with headstock adjust, topped by a 9.5”-12” compound-radius fingerboard with abalone face dots and 22 medium jumbo frets. Hand-wound Dual-Mag pickups feature alnico V magnets on the bass side and beveled alnico II magnets on the treble side, creating tonal balance and consistency and improving string-to-string clarity. Vintage Modified #2 wiring with tone-saver treble bleed features a master volume, tone #1 (neck and middle pickups), and tone #2 (bridge) with treble bleed (for keeping mids and rolling off highs without adding bass). Other features include a three-ply parchment pickguard, strap locks, Sperzel® tuning machines with pearl buttons, bone nut, and American Standard String Tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
