Our last one of this exact model - now discontinued by Fender Custom Shop

Fender don't make a Custom Shop Hank Marvin Signature guitar but Guitar Mania think they should, so we have secured a limited quantity of these guitars inspired by Hank Marvins own Fender guitar and it is the closest spec you can buy off-the-shelf.
The guitar we have for sale is a genuine Made in the USA Fender Custom Shop 56 NOS Strat Custom (team built) and a cross between a 56 NOS Strat and a Custom Classic but with some tasty upgrades (highlighted in bold in the spec below) for example;

Limited Run - only 12 per THIS MODEL IS NOW DISCONTINUED !!! Last One
22 Fret (instead of the 56 NOS neck which has only 21 frets);
AA grade Birds Eye Maple neck (instead of the plain maple);
Satin finish on rear of neck and gloss on front; (instead of sticky gloss all over);
Modern comfortable 9.5" radius (instead of the very curved 7.5" 50's neck)
Fender noiseless pickups (instead of vintage 56 pickups);
Sperzel Gold Locking Tuners (instead of vintage machineheads) - see the spec below for details.

Guitar Mania Says:
This guitar is absolutely gorgeous. We've sold a number of these over the past couple of years. A little mre money than a standard 56 NOS Strat but in my opinion BETTER ! A great feeling neck. Satin on the back for comfort, gloss on the front for durability and glamour with a modern easy playing shape. It's the shape that makes all th edifference. The modern radius frets and soft V is much nicer than the 7.25" radius on the 56 NOS.
Superb tone - the vintage noiseless pickups behave exactly as you would expect. Quiet and tasteful.
Plus THAT look ! Think of Hank Marvin and you think of a suit, a pair of glasses and a Red Fender Strat !
The guitar will come with a Certificate of Authenticity, Fender Tweed Hard Case, Strap, Trem Arm, Gold Trem Cover and Cable. Playability wise you can expect a low but clear action, everything you'd expect from Fender Custom Shop and backed up by Guitar Mania's MULTI award winning expertise and experience.
