Fender Limited Edition '55 Bone Tone Strat Relic, 2A Flame Maple Fingerboard, Aged Honey Blonde with Gold Hardware
The Limited Edition ’55 Bone Tone Strat harkens back to an archetypal year for the Strat, with modified vintage-style features, gold hardware and added custom appointments. The two-piece ash body wears a relic lacquer finish, while the tinted one-piece 2A flame maple neck has a comfortable ’54 Strat “soft V” profile, vintage compound-radius fingerboard (7.25”-9.5”) and 21 narrow tall frets.
Master designed hand-wound Bone Tone pickups provide plenty of headroom with fewer turns of heavy formvar wire, beveled alnico 2 magnets and ’54 pickup covers. The five-way switch is connected to “½ blender” wiring, which lets the neck pickup be blended in positions 1 and 2. Other features include an eight-hole gold anodized pickguard, Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and a vintage-style disc string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
