just in stock, this absolutely jewel of a guitar, this is a 2011 Custom Shop Fender Custom Deluxe, finished in Lustrous Blue. This is not your average Strat! Please read further down for some spec. This baby has been in a private collection and never been gigged, hence is In 100% pristine condition. Sleeps in her cream Fender case with all original candy.
Fender describes the new Custom Deluxe Strat as being “designed for the working musician”. What the company means by that is that it’s taken the vintage blueprint of this stalwart model and added some modern improvements – in the pickup, bridge, fret and tuner departments – to create instruments that at a casual glance look like regular Fender Stratocasters but which perform like highly-tuned thoroughbreds.
The ‘modern player’ twists that Fender has built-in include the company’s two-point floating vibrato, which has been around for some years and has proved a hassle-free successor to Leo’s original. Its solid stainless steel saddles and rear block provide plenty of twang and sustain and its usability goes without saying, given that it’s whammy abuser Jeff Beck’s system of choice.
Tying in neatly with this is a set of Schaller locking tuners, staggered in height to obviate the need for a string tree and to aid tuning by not impeding the string’s route across the headstock. The final nod to the ‘modern’ player is the 22-fret, 241mm (9.5-inch) radius fingerboard and taller Dunlop 6105 frets which provide a playground for string bending and vibrato – the Strat’s perfect style partners.a general feeling that care has gone into every last detail on this guitar. Lovers of class will enjoy the Custom Deluxe’s lightly-figured maple neck, with ‘Abalone’ dot markers and the modern script headstock logo. When a guitar looks this good you just want to pick it up and play. Nicely weighted and balanced, the Strat is still the most comfortable guitar of all to play,
Another great Fender then – what a surprise! It’s become something of a ritual of late – Fender brings out some new guitars and we rave about them. But it’s not hollow praise. And this is definitely not ‘just another Strat.’
The Custom Deluxe Stratocaster comes in selected finishes that have been chosen for the woods used. This baby has a lightly figured one-piece maple neck/fingerboard. Just gorgeous
