This 2020 Fender Custom Shop 60s NOS Stratocaster is in excellent, virtually unplayed cosmetic condition. There is one tiny ding on the top in the forearm area of the instrument that I have photographed, but this Strat is otherwise in like new condition. The neck profile on this Stratocaster is noted as a 1965 NOS profile. This neck feels absolutely fantastic. It has a very nice round, medium to chunky shape with exceptionally comfortable rounded shoulders. The fret wire is in excellent, virtually unplayed condition. This Strat has just been professionally set up with .10 gauge strings and plays superbly up and down the fingerboard with great action and spot on intonation. The Fender Custom Shop hand wound pickups sound incredible in all five positions and really deliver quintessential, clear, articulate Stratocaster tones. This guitar sounds absolutely outstanding. This instrument is housed in its original tweed covered Fender Custom Shop hard shell case for safe travels. The Fender Custom Shop team builds some of the finest instruments on the planet and this 60s Stratocaster is simply no exception. A gem of a guitar shipped safely and promptly from our little shop in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
