What we say:

At A Glance

The Fender Custom Shop American Custom Stratocaster in Black is a real gem. Based on a '56 Strat this guitar is familiar in all the right ways but raising the bar on performance, it is much more than the sum of its parts. It has historic touches as well as modern leanings, making it an excellent meeting of contemporary performance and Fender tradition. If you value a great playing guitar crafted by some of the best luthiers on the planet, then look no further.

The American Custom Stratocaster sports some fantastic features including the exquisite Roasted Birdseye Maple neck, with "V" profile, high-performance locking tuners, and the superb Hand-Wound Fat '60s Strat pickups for all the powerful, chiming, and throaty Strat tones you know and love.

This guitar also boasts Fender Custom Shop's NOS finish level. Instead of creating the idea of a decades-old instrument, NOS, or New Old Stock, offers what this guitar would have looked like, brand new out the factory, back in the vintage days.

Features We Love:

Custom Shop Built

Home to some of the most talented luthiers in the world, Fender Custom Shop has been producing incredible guitars since they first opened back in 1987. With a wealth of knowledge and skill all under one roof, each guitar is instilled with some of that Custom Shop magic.


This guitar is fitted with a set of Hand-Wound Fat '60s Strat Pickups. These pickups are overwound for increased output and low end punch, which perfectly fits this guitar with its vintage and modern blend of specs. Still with all the crystal clear articulation we expect from a Strat and a powerful midrange that works just as well clean as it does overdriven!

NOS Finish

This guitar's NOS, or New Old Stock finish package is a little different from the Custom Shop's Relic finishes. Relic finishes recreate a guitar from the vintage era that's sat around or been played for the decades in between then and now. NOS, on the other hand, is like a 50s or 60s Fender guitar jumped right out the factory, through a time machine, right to your hand. The result is the closest possible experience to playing a brand new Fender from the days of yore.

Who Is It For?

The Strat player looking for a truly top-quality guitar that plays and sounds like a dream.
