FENDER USA Custom Shop 1956 Heavy Relic Stratocaster "Dakota Red + Maple" (2020)

FENDER USA Custom Shop 1956 Heavy Relic Stratocaster "Dakota Red + Maple" (2020)

Here we have a beautiful Dakota red custom shop 1956 strat. This finish was first introduced in 1960 and became discontinued early 1969. Fun fact is that the earliest you'll see the actual color Dakota Red was in 1958, the year it was introduced on Cadillacs. Proved hugely popular at the time. The thin nitro, aged finish, has been cut back so you experience that silky smooth ‘played in’ from day one vibe. To enrich the classic vintage feel, you’ll find modern appointments include a 9.5″ fingerboard radius along with a set of ‘medium/jumbo’ 6105 frets, both of which allow for a slick action and effortless string bending with no choking out. Faultless!

She comes in a custom shop case with all the case candy and extra strap and guitar picks.
