Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 75th Anniversary Stratocaster N.O.S. in Diamond White Pearl
A Diamond-quality Strat a Cut Above the Rest
Nearly a century since its first iteration, the Fender Stratocaster remains a guitar institution. To honor Fender's 75th anniversary, the Custom Shop Limited-edition 75th Anniversary Stratocaster embodies everything that has made Strats so highly coveted while adding several lavish features. From the 2-piece select alder body to the 5A birdseye maple neck and impressive AAA rosewood fingerboard, Fender left no stone unturned in constructing a Custom Shop Strat for this special occasion. Thanks to a trio of Fat '60s single-coil pickups, the Custom Shop Strat churns out classic tones that range from shimmering and jangly to bluesy and biting, while an RWRP middle pickup, a 5-way switch, and Fat '50s Strat wiring unlock a myriad of tonal options. Rounding out the extensive first-class features on this jewel of a Strat are vintage-style tuners, a Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, mother-of-pearl inlays, gold-plated hardware, and a gold anodized aluminum pickguard.
When it comes to instrument making, 75 years is an incredible milestone. This Custom Shop 75th Anniversary Stratocaster celebrates the occasion with some of the finest-quality woods and accouterments available. It all starts with a 2-piece select alder body, which is a timeless Strat tonewood revered for its hearty sound complete with thick mids, sizzling highs, and chunky lows. A jaw-droppingly gorgeous Quartersawn 5A figured birdseye maple neck is bolted onto the body, offering superior tuning stability with that beloved maple snap and first-class looks. The true magic resides in the form of a round-laminated AAA rosewood fingerboard, silky smooth to the touch while producing a warmer, more musical sound than other woods.
Classic Strat tone from Fat '60s single-coil pickups
The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 75th Anniversary Stratocaster sports three Fat '60s single-coil pickups, renowned for their bell-like jangle and smooth, bluesy tone. These pickups deliver bright and clear cleans with the perfect amount of midrange bite. When you plug your Custom Shop Strat into your favorite tube amplifier, you'll discover everything from mellow tones to outrageously aggressive leads — all within a casual twist of a volume knob. On top of that, you get a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup with a 5-way blade pickup selector.
Synchronized tremolo adds texture to chords and leads
Armed with a vintage synchronized tremolo, the Custom Shop 75th Anniversary Strat moves from shimmery chords to distinct vibrato and beyond with a natural response that won't strain your hand. You can bend confidently courtesy of a set of rock-solid vintage tuning machines, and the convenient pop-in tremolo arm is a welcome feature that guitarists at Sweetwater wholeheartedly appreciate.
