The Fender Custom Shop’s limited edition 1960 White Lightning Stratocaster® HSS guitar will hit you like a sonic bolt from the blue. This fierce tone machine features a potent combination of Fat ’50s neck and middle pickups with a DiMarzio® DP155 humbucking bridge pickup, a Floyd Rose® Special double-locking two-point tremolo bridge, and early-’60s styling with a heavily worn multi-color nitro-lacquer finish you’re just going to have to see to believe.
Other features include a lightweight alder body, lightly tinted quartersawn maple neck with a comfortable mid-’60s “C”-shaped profile, rosewood fingerboard with 12” radius and 21 jumbo frets, five-way pickup switching, three-ply mint green pickguard, aged white control knobs and switch tip, vintage-style tuners and more. Hard-shell case included.
Available exclusively at Wild West Guitars.
