    Product Description

    Here at Andertons Music Co. we're fortunate enough to get our hands on a number Fender Custom Shop instruments, to give you a chance to own something truly special and unique. As part of a Limited Edition run from the Fender Custom Shop, this '58 Special Stratocaster certainly is both special and unique!

    With its worn aesthetics, time-honoured hardware and vintage-style electronics; this premium guitar is a late '50s Stratocaster with a tasteful twist, with a AAAA Flamed Roasted Maple neck, Gold pickguard and Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups.

    Lightweight Roasted Alder Body

    The extra light Alder used for this guitar was a hand-picked by the Fender Custom Shop for its weight. It was then roasted to further dry out the wood, which results in even less weight and more resonance, so when you strum this guitar, it feels alive in your hand. Alder is a time honoured wood selection for Strats, owing to its balanced, full-bodied tone and pronounced upper mids, which adds to the crispness and chime of a Strat.

    Vintage Neck Profile

    The Stunning AAAA Flamed Maple used to make this neck has also been roasted to reduce weight and increase resonance. It also makes the neck stronger and more stable, meaning it is extremely resistant to bowing or warping with changing weather conditions or climates. The deep roasted colour and mesmerising flame pairs beautifully with the sunburst finish and gold pickguard. The Maple neck is also period correct for a '58 Strat, and adds brightness and snap to your tone, giving you shimmery cleans and dynamic overdrive tones.

    The '54 soft V profile gives it the feel of the very earliest Strats, feeling fairly thin, but filling out the palm more than a C shape. The Neck is finished with nitrocellulose lacquer which has been worn on the back of the neck, leaving satin finish, beloved for its silky smooth feel.

    The compound radius fretboard flattens from a vintage 7.25" at the nut to 9.5" radius - as seen on modern Fenders. This allows for comfortable barre chords towards the neck, but a flatter radius up top which can allow for a lower action without notes fretting out when you bend. The narrow tall frets are the perfect blend of vintage tone and modern playability. They offer the height of a modern fret, giving you a familiar feel, but their narrow construction ensures that the "woodiness" of your tone stays intact, as you would get with a smaller, vintage fret.

    Vintage Tone

    This '58 Special Strat is adorned with 3 Custom Shop Fat '50s Strat pickups. They feature period correct hand-bevelled, staggered Alnico V magnets. Alnico V has a punchier tone than Alnico II, giving it a fat clean tone and raunchy overdrive. The magnets are coiled by era correct Formvar magnet wire, which delivers plenty of bass, for a smooth, plummy tone. The middle pickup is reverse wound / reverse polarity which allows for hum-cancellation in positions 2 and 4, and delivers those iconic clean, quacky "in-between" stat positions.
