1956 Stratocaster Black 2005 (s260) | Fender Custom Shop Electric Guitars

The benchmark of craftsmanship, the Fender Custom Shop is the apex of what Fender has to offer. Each instrument is hand-crafted by Fender Master Builders from only the finest, premium-grade components. The Custom Shop, known also as “The Dream Factory,” produces extremely limited runs of period-correct touchstones from the Fender catalog, as well as special one-offs featuring experimental, ground-up design and appointments. Custom hand-wound and treated pickups, exotic tonewoods, hand-aged hardware, special relicing techniques–only the best of the best goes into what leaves the Fender Custom Shop. Fender’s finest expression of quality and art, supreme in all ways.
