Product information - FENDER '56 Stratocaster NOS MN Pewter #R107871

Custom Shop electric guitar with NOS finish, El Diablo Single-Coils and Synchronized Tremolo, including case and certificate

The Fender '56 Stratocaster NOS MN Pewter takes the classic mid-fifties style of the Californian company and combines it with subtle modernizations to meet contemporary demands for playability and sound. The flamed maple neck with fingerboard radius in the Compund Radius promises an extremely agile handling. Three El Diablo single coils with modern wiring conjure up powerful clean and overdrive sounds for contemporary blues and rock styles. The flawless look of the "New Old Stock" finish also makes the '56 Stratocaster NOS MN Pewter from the Fender Custom Shop a true gem.

Classic style, modern playing comfort

With its classic Strat style, the '56 Stratocaster NOS offers outstanding playing characteristics. Thanks to the proven "Contour Body" design, the two-piece alder body hugs the player with optimal balance. The bolt-on maple neck fits comfortably in the hand with its not too thick and pleasantly round "'63 Strat Style C" profile. At the same time, the compound radius of the fingerboard creates the best conditions for buttery smooth bendings and trouble-free gripping of chords.

El Diablo Single-Coils and Modern Strat Wiring

For the electric guitar pickup, the Fender Custom Shop chooses three hand-wound El Diablo single-coils. With their increased output and the right amount of bite, these pickups provide the perfect sonic foundation for scorching riffs and fiery solos that range from blues to rock. The reverse-wound and polarized midrange pickups also ensure hum-free performance in the intermediate positions of the 5-way circuit. Thanks to the Modern Strat Wiring, the '56 Strat NOS offers a dedicated tone control for the neck pickup and a common tone control for the middle and bridge pickups

Traditional Hardware Features

Last but not least, Fender's '56 Stratocaster NOS MN Pewter is rounded out by hardware appointments that have stood the test of time since 1954. For smooth vibrato embellishments, the Fender American Vintage Synchronized Tremolo is used on the body. A bone nut and Fender Vintage-style tuners also guarantee precise and stable tuning, even when frequently reaching for the vibrato lever.
