This Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt 1956 Stratocaster NOS by Jason Smith is in on trade and in great shape. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned and the truss rod is functioning properly.
The Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt 1956 Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar is a unique blend of vintage specs and modern electronics. Handbuilt by Master Luthier Jason Smith, this '56 Strat delivers vintage vibe with a 1-piece maple neck with a 10/56 V profile, vintage fretwire, as well as vintage tuners and tremolo. On the modern side it's loaded with a trio of Hand Wound John Cruz Bone Tone Single coil Strat pickups and a Fender TBX master tone circuit for fat single-coil tones. This one-off Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt 1956 Stratocaster is the perfect mix of old and new.
This guitar was originally commissioned by Sweetwater. It was ordered with a set of Gold Lace Sensor pickups which were replaced with a set of Hand wound, John Cruz Spec Bone Tone Pickups by us. We happened to have a used set and they were the perfect upgrade for this Masterbuilt Guitar. These pickups sound great and work amazingly well with pedals. They are wound to John's spec's and typically only available in his guitars.
Nobody treats used guitars like we do at The Music Gallery! All trade in's go through an inspection, cleaning, restring and setup before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service peaks your interest learn more here or give us a call!
