    In 2010, the Fender Custom Shop created this Strat. Candy Apple Red over a gold basecoat with a gold anodized aluminum pickguard and maple neck.

    This is my "Custom Shop" replica. Based on a 2016 Classic 50's Lacquer Strat. Candy Apple Red over a gold basecoat with a gold anodized aluminum pickguard and maple neck. Pickups are Seymour Duncan California 50's (SSL-1s w/reverse wound/reverse polarity middle and 5-way switch). Amp is the 5F6A Bassman clone I built several years ago.

    I really like these MIM 50s lacquer strat. they are amazing!

    I´m looking for one like yours to replace a japanese 50s reissue I had back in the day. but in my case will be my ¨leningrad tribute¨ to malmsteen

    Sweet, 636. I would love to hear that Strat thru your Bassman clone.
    Any chance of that happening?

    Thanks. My wife and I retired last May and bought a home in Southwest Virginia. This was an unfinished bonus room above the garage and I had it finished off. Was completed last month.

    View from our back porch. Yes, that is a real moon rise over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    Thanks. We are at the end of a cul-de-sac with a cattle farm on one side and a large pear orchard on the other. A horse farm is down the road. Our view all around is spectacular.

    Have fun with your build.

    Really nice house and the view! I have a mij 50s reissue.. Often thought about changing up the neck on it, not a huge fan of the 7.25 radius and the small fretwire.

    Thanks.

    Switching between my Strat 7.25" radius to my Custom Shop R8 12" radius doesn't bother me in the least.
