2000 Fender Custom Shop 1956 Stratocaster NOS Closet Classic. Lightweight Alder body finished in Nitro Sunburst. Soft V profile maple neck with a 7.25” radius maple fingerboard and 21 Vintage frets. The frets are in excellent condition and show minimal to no sign of wear. Late 50 small headstock and spaghetti logo. American Vintage Klusons/gotoh style tuners. American Vintage tremolo system and rolled fender saddles. The pickguard assembly is signed by J.Cruz, who later on became one of the master builders at Fender. The CS pickups have a “5” written on one of the poles, denoting Alnico V, so they are most likely a fat 50s version. Vintage style wiring with the optional 5 way toggle switch installed at some point in time, the 3 way does come with it. Single ply 50’s style 8 hole pickguard. The guitar weighs 3.54Kg or 7.8Lb. The nut width is 42.5mm. In stunning condition throughout, no scratches or dings. The lacquer did start checking nicely with age. Comes with the original Deluxe tweed case, COA and case candy.
