from Fender Custom Shop-
Not bound to any particular year or design era, reverently irreverent Custom Shop Postmodern guitars represent six decades of “Fender firsts” based simply on our own subjective view of what works best in a single instrument. Player friendly with enhanced sonic and ergonomic features, the Postmoderns open the door to an even wider range of individual musical expression and creativity, with elegantly crafted Stratocaster® and Telecaster® models, and a special combination Precision/Jazz Bass® model.
The 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster® is elegantly designed with a reappraisal of modern assumptions. A thoroughly contemporary take on a time-honored classic, it has a lightweight ash body with a comfortably contoured heel, a quartersawn maple neck with a finely sculpted ’60s “C” profile, a fast compound-radius (9.5″-12″) “round-laminated” maple or rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets, and three sparkling Fat ’60s single-coil pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) with modern five-way switching and a special “Tone-Saver” treble-bleed network that keeps tone consistent at any volume (no loss of highs when decreasing volume).
Other premium features include a three-ply parchment pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, staggered tuning machines (no string tree), Schaller® strap locks and Fender “F” logo engraved neck plate. Available in Black, Olympic White, Dakota Red and Three-Color-Sunburst new “Journeyman” Relic® lacquer finishes, which imparts the appearance of years of aging and light use without heavy wear and tear. Includes black textured vinyl hard-shell case.
The 2015 Postmodern Telecaster® features many of the same accouterments as the Strat, but with dual Twisted Tele® pickups with three-way switching and a Greasebucket™ tone circuit, which rolls off highs without reducing gain. Watch the video above to get a closer look!
