Hi I’m Chris (MD, Guitar Mania), and I want to thank you for viewing this product. Guitar Mania is a small family run tradition bricks n mortar shop with a front door, til, phone and real people, offering a very personal service ;o)
It’s business, but it’s personal, so your order really matters to me! Thank you!

Here we have an absolutely stunning Fender Custom Shop 56′ NOS Stratocaster, this guitar is the real deal! One of my favourite Strats I’ve ver put my hand on, this guitar is just alive! It’s so resonant and is a joy to play. The guitar was built in 2010 and comes with all the case candy, COA etc.

More info:
Body Condition: 8/10 – The body is in really good shape, the Nitro is starting to crack on the guitar now so it’s really picking up those vintage vibes! (see pictures) The body does have a small bump on the front and on the back (they are so small they don’t show up in the pictures) no cracks to the neck pocket but some lacquer cracking is all over the sides, back of the guitar.

Neck: 8.5/10 – What a neck! It is definitely a larger neck, feels great in the hand! Effortless playing is a guarantee on this guitar! A tiny bit of play in the frets, just down the cowboy end. Many years of life left in the frets though. No scuffs on the back of the neck, only one ding to report in the top of the headstock. The neck is glossed, doesn’t feel overly sticky like the old Mexican Classic series.

Hardware: 9/10 – All stock original hardware, some very minimal tarnishing on the hardware throughout the guitar. Being a 56′ please note this guitar has a 3-way switch. It is easy enough to drop in a 5 though should you need those in-between sounds.

Electrics: 9/10
Sockets, pots and switches etc are wear and tear items. The electrics on this guitar have been tested and are in very good working order, but my standard disclaimer is it’s a used guitar and one must expect SOME occasional electrical ‘scratching’ noise, crackling and popping when adjusting pots and switches. When we tested it, this guitar was working very very well.

This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it’s style so has a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing.

Case: Comes with a Fender Tweed G&G case, all case candy and COA is present with the guitar.

Priced with all of the above in mind but feel free to “make an offer”.
