This is a 2014 Fender American Special Stratocaster in black with a maple neck. It has been upgraded to mimic the iconic David Gilmour Black Strat.

The finish is very good. The white marks in the photographs are light reflections. Guitar setup is a matter of preference and can be altered relatively easily by you or a local guitar professional. I cannot guarantee that this guitar will be set up to your liking.

 Callaham Standard Model Strat Bridge Assembly

Mini Toggle switch to add the neck pickup to the output signal no matter where the 5-way switch is. (7-way feature) This feature is good to have the bridge and neck pickup selected at the same time for a tele middle position sound. You can also combine all three pickups.

The pickguard is all hand wired and tested for correct functionality in the 920D Custom Mod Shop Please call Jimmy at show contact info with any questions or to discuss any custom options.

SSL-5 Bridge

Though it looks like the SSL-1 and has that distinct vintage tone, the SSL-5's over-wound coil yields higher output, more sustain and great harmonics. The result is a pickup that rocks hard and cuts through the mix, but cleans up nicely when you back off the volume. Includes white cover.

'69 Middle

Fender Custom Shop '69 Strat Pickups offer you a unique construction and vibe. These are the guitar pickups that can deliver the coveted clear, transparent highs; thumping lows; and bleeding midrange response and feel that define electric guitar tone as we know it.


Just like the originals, these Fender pickups are built using height-staggered Alnico V magnets and a special gray bobbin.

Fat 50's Neck

The Fender Fat '50s Strat Pickup Set gives you calibrated pickups constructed with hand-beveled, staggered Alnico V magnets and Formvar magnet wire. '50s Strat Pickups deliver enhanced bass response without the harsh midrange. OEM on Custom Shop Fender Showmaster series Stratocaster guitars.

Callaham Bridge Assembly

This is a complete assembly. It has 2 1/16" string spacing and 2 1/16" mounting spacing, and will work with any guitar with 2 1/16" mounting spacing. It does not need to be a Fender guitar. If you have 2 1/16" mounting and a 1 3/4" body with vintage style routing, it will fit.
Every bridge is hand checked for arm fit & smoothness. Featuring our signature cold rolled steel block and our proprietary zero-clearance arm fitment.
