Fender Custom Shop 1961 Stratocaster, "New Old Stock" 3-Tone Sunburst Finish, Tortoiseshell Pickguard, AAA Rosewood Fingerboard

The early 1960s saw the first Golden Age of Fender guitars. By 1961 the Stratocaster had come into its own in the world of popular music, with Surf Rock giants The Beach Boys and Dick Dale championing the Stratocaster stateside, whilst Hank Marvin and the Shadows were doing the same in the UK.

A Faithful Recreation of a prized Pre-CBS Era Strat

The Fender Custom Shop 61 Stratocaster is a fitting tribute to this era of innovation, with a whole host of period-correct appointments and hardware, which helps to impart an authentic early 60's Strat experience.

60's Style Neck Profile

This Custom Shop 61 Stratocaster features a period-accurate "Oval C" neck profile, which leaves you with an authentic vintage playing feel straight out of the early 1960s. This particular profile is perfect for comfortably faster playstyles than the older "V" and "U" shapes.

"New Old Stock"

Whilst some instruments from the Fender Custom Shop have been given an aged look, this particular guitar is of the New Old Stock (NOS) category. This means that the guitar is reminiscent of a brand-new, straight-from-the-box instrument - it's as though it's been transported to you via time machine directly from 1961!

Hand Wound, Custom Shop Pickups

Influenced heavily by the pickups that gave the 1960s Stratocaster its signature sound, their exquisite design delivers an enhanced bass response with an extra shot of 21st-Century attitude. As with all original Strat's, the middle pickup is of a reverse-wound, reverse-polarity construction, giving it that unique sound that we've come to love and expect of Vintage Stratocasters.

Period-Correct Cases and Ephemera

As with all Custom-Shop Relic guitars, this particular model comes complete with a period-correct tweed hard shell case, every bit as vintage-authentic as the guitar you will be keeping inside of it. The case is accompanied by a fascinating wealth of in-case reproduction extras and accessories, such as: Custom Shop Strap, cable, polishing cloth, wiring kit, and even a genuine certificate of authenticity.
