Fender Custom Shop Artisan Okoume Stratocaster


We've been SUPER lucky in unearthing this gem from Fender's Custom Shop. Hand built from ultra exotic timbers including an 'Okoume' Body and Roasted Birdseye Maple Neck, handwound pickups and gold hardware, this is a super stunning instrument. Roasted maple is the 'creme de la creme' of woods used by the Fender Custom Shop, the roasting process crystallises the sugars in the woods and makes them more 'vintage' from new. Combined with stunning birdseye figure this is some of the best maple available on a Fender today. Sound is rich, full and bell like, with all the chime and resonance you'd look for in the best of vintage strats. A true keeper!

Here's what Fender have to say.....

For the discerning player with an eye for beauty, Artisan series instruments are works of art crafted with purity of design in mind. Each instrument blends high-end appointments with original-era features for a one-of-a-kind Custom Shop experience. From exotic tone woods to handwound pickups, no design touch is too ornate, yet each instrument is distinctly Fender. The Artisan Okoume Stratocaster is a perfect combination of striking form and legendary Fender functionality. Mesmerizing in looks and sound, its '56 Strat® body is crafted from premium okoume and finished in classic chocolate sunburst. Featuring a comfortable 10/56 "V" profile, the bird's-eye maple neck is "roasted" to a dark caramel colour to match the body-s edges and finished with nitrocellulose lacquer for ultimate breathability and feel. Complete with gold hardware, a trio of handwound single-coil '69 Strat pickups and a wealth of cosmetic upgrades, each unique model is a feast for eyes and ears alike. Other features include a 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage tall frets and bone nut, headstock with gold foil Fender logo, gold American Vintage Strat bridge, '50s-style truss rod adjustment, vintage-correct knobs and parchment pickguard, five-way switching and more.
