Fender Custom Shop Wildwood 10 1961 Stratocaster – NOS
Attention Strat-slingers! We have a special treat for you: a Wildwood 10 Strat with Hand-Wound Tomatillo pickups. This is the first Wildwood 10 to feature these pickups, and we have no doubt their vintage vibe will inspire some lucky Fender fanatic to embark on all sorts of fretboard adventures!
The Perfect 10Years ago, we approached our friends at the Fender Custom Shop with a proposal: would they build us guitars that combined the mojo of a true-to-vintage reissue with modern handfeel and comfy modern ergonomics? They were enthused about the idea, and the Wildwood 10 was born. Thanks to the Custom Shop’s incredible craftsmanship and artistry, these guitars look gorgeous, sound killer, and play like butter.
Each of these Custom Shop creations features a thin fifties-style nitrocellulose finish, which allows the voice of the resonant hand-selected tonewoods to shine through. They also have hand-wound Custom Shop pickups that are sure to inspire you to reach new heights on your sonic journey. Wildwood 10s feel great in your hands, too. Their modern 10” radius is suitable for a wide variety of styles and techniques, and their 6105 narrow-tall frets allow you to expend less energy with your left hand, especially when bending strings. To top it all off, they come with a limited edition Dealer Select Wildwood 10 hardshell case and a certificate of authenticity.
Supremely Fun Sixty-OnesBy 1961, the Stratocaster was fast on its way to becoming a cultural mainstay after Strat-slingers like Hank Marvin took the airwaves by storm. The sixties were also an exciting time for Stratocaster design, as Leo and company outfitted them with rosewood fretboards for the first time. The rosewood produced a sweet attack that spoke to everyone from Hendrix to SRV! Our Wildwood 10 1961 Stratocasters pay tribute to the great Strat boom of the sixties, and we think they embody the sweet sounds of that era to a T. We have a wide variety of colors, relic'd finishes, and neck profiles on tap, so we invite you to browse away and find a Strat that plucks your heartstrings. Once you do, we're sure you'll fall under the spell of the Wildwood 1961 Stratocaster.
