MORE ABOUT VINTAGE CUSTOM ‘55 HARDTAIL STRAT®
A rare and compelling find indeed, the Vintage Custom ’55 Hardtail Strat has all the tremolo-less charm needed to inspire any player, collector or aficionado. Start with a two-piece ash body finished in NOS flashcoat lacquer and add a one-piece rift-sawn maple neck with a 1954 “U” profile, vintage compound-fingerboard radius fingerboard (7.25”– 9.5”) and medium vintage 47095 frets.
Hand-wound 1955 Strat pickups with 1954 covers are wired to a vintage ’55 control assembly and five-way switch. Other features include Closet Classic hardware, single-ply eggshell pickguard, vintage-style hardtail bridge with patent pending saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and a disc string tree. Available in Wide-Fade Two-Color Sunburst and Aged White Blonde finishes. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom series instruments represent early, almost prototypical, transitional and “first rev” versions of classic Fender models before they were refined into their present-day form. Featuring a few subtle modifications for enhanced playability and tone, some models incorporate prototypical features that barely saw the light of day while others have rarely seen transitional parts combinations that may have been used during the instrument’s development.
All of the Vintage Custom models feature our “Time Capsule” aging package. Combining our original “No Buff” NOS Flash Coat Lacquer finish with Closet Classic hardware, the Time Capsule package grants these instruments the charming appearance, authentic sound and genuine mojo of an extremely lucky vintage find.
