Here’s a Fender Custom Shop 59 Vintage Custom hardtail Strat  in NOS sonic blue with a mint green pickguard and nice dark rosewood fretboard. One of my favorite color combos.

Fender sez: “1959 saw the advent of several important feature changes to the Stratocaster® including a slab rosewood fingerboard with clay position dots, a three-ply mint green pickguard with 8, 9 or 10 screws depending on the month it was built, and a metal spacer added to the string tree. This hardtail version would have been on the rare side, which ups the collectability and cool factors. This guitar features a hand-selected two-piece alder body and a rift-sawn maple neck with a 1959 “D” profile, a vintage compound-radius (7.25″ – 9.5″) AAA rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium vintage frets.

Hand-wound 1959 Strat pickups are wired to a vintage ’59 control assembly and five-way switch. Other features include Closet Classic hardware, three-ply eight-hole mint green pickguard, vintage-style hardtail bridge with patent pending saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.”
