Masterbuilt Vincent Van Tright 1959 Stratocaster


Add to Cart
This is the Holy Grail of what the Fender Custom Shop can do. This piece was built 100% by Vincent Van Tright who is the newest Master Builder in the FCS family. He apprenticed under John Cruz for years to learn form one of the most acclaimed guitar builders alive today. When we flew out to Fender to view a special selection of custom shop pieces our team ran straight toward this piece! We were all floored by the craftsmanship of what he delivered in this impeccable instrument. This is built off of a 1959 Stratocaster platform in aged olympic white. The heavy relic lacquer finish over the two piece alder body is outstanding to look at, feel, and play. The finish work on this piece is clearly a labor of love for Vincent. The neck is amazing and has a nice moderate 60's oval "C" shape that fits extremely comfortably. We comped this to two fo our vintage strats and the neck was uncannily similar. The pickups are magic on this guitar and were hand wound by the master Josephina in the 50's style. 
All in all this is perhaps one of the best pieces we have played to come ut of the custom shop in quite awhile. The tone, feel, mojo, and should of this instrument are so apparent that it almost hurts! We love love love this guitar and are thrilled to be able to offer this to you today.
