Fender Custom Shop NOS 57 Stratocaster Strat Blackguard 3 Tone Sunburst Guitar

This is a Fender Custom Shop NOS 57 Stratocaster Strat Blackguard 3 Tone Sunburst Guitar.  The Fender Custom Shop Blackguard Strat Series is a CMC Guitars Exclusive.  We always loved the look of the early Blackguard Telecasters and Nocasters.  So we thought why not bring that look to a classic Stratocaster that only came with a white pickguard.  So we picked the ever classic '57 Strat to give this subtle make over to.  We also made a few other small tweaks to the standard specs. We had the body hand picked for a lightweight piece of Alder. This guitar weighs in a light 7.4 lbs.  And we also decided to load this beauty with Fender Custom Shop Fat '50's Pickups and a Bone Nut.  The neck is a Lightly Tinted Quartsawn Maple Neck with an Eric Clapton '57 Soft "V" Profile which is one of the most comfortable necks Fender makes.  And we set this strat up with a 5-Way pickup switch. And for the fretboard and fret this strat has a flatter 9.5" Radius and 6105 Jumbo Narrow Frets.  So this baby is a player.  It looks and sounds amazing and will be a great addition to any collection. Take a trip back to rock 'n' roll's golden age, with the '57 Blackguard Strat!

This Fender Custom Shop Strat boasts a lightweight Alder body with a lacquer finish. The  1-piece quartersawn maple neck is wrapped with a finish and sports an Eric Clapton Soft "V" shape. The single-ply Black Pickguard and 5-way pickup switch with Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's single-coil pickups.
