Fender Custom Shop NOS '60 Stratocaster (Lake Placid Blue)
I wanted a "blue Strat" so I went to buy one from Fender Mexico or something like that, but I ended up trying this one that I saw and inadvertently fell in love with it. On the way back home, I found myself carrying a Fender Custom Shop hard case with this one in it. Well, I certainly accomplished my goal of "getting a blue Strat," but at just under five times my original budget...
This is a Fender USA Custom Shop '60 Stratocaster, a NOS (New Old Stock - a "time machine" concept product that is brand new at the time of the vintage) model, so it has not been aged. It was manufactured in January 2012.

From the faintest touch to the strongest attack, it reliably reflects the picking nuance. Core single coil sound.
