This Fender® Custom Shop Greg Fessler Master Built 1969 Stratocaster Firemist Gold will rock your world!

Every Masterbuilt Fender Custom Shop guitar is a labor of love—premium craftsmanship is united with a deep, abiding passion for the instruments and respect for those who play them. Inspired by the Strat® guitars wielded by the giants of classic rock, the Greg Fessler Builder Select ’69 Stratocaster is a perfect example of the skill and commitment possessed by the Custom Shop luthiers.

Cosmetically this guitar is identical to the models that came off the line in 1969, played by renowned guitarists such as Gilmour, Blackmore and Hendrix. “I really like the look of the ‘69s, with the big headstock and everything,” Fessler said. When asked why he chose Firemist Gold Metallic for the finish he replied with a grin in his voice, “Well, it’s a vintage-era finish that could be found at the time, and people really like gold.” This thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only looks great, it allows the guitar’s body to breathe with extra resonance, sustain and a more natural sound.

This sterling instrument bears a few Fessler-designed custom modifications, otherwise remaining as period-accurate as possible—from the F-style tuning machines and 6-point tremolo to the mid-60s Oval “C”-shaped maple neck and narrow jumbo frets. The Custom Shop pickup complement is the well-known “Fessler Set” originally developed in 2006—three hand-wound single-coil pickups carefully selected by Fessler for their classic, highly dynamic and reactive tone when used together: a singing Custom ‘69 neck pickup, thick Fat ‘50s middle pickup and hot, high output Texas Special bridge pickup. The wiring is the special sauce that completes this tonal recipe— a treble bleed circuit maintains clarity while adjusting the guitar’s volume knob, retaining crisp clear high end and creating consistent tone while “cleaning up” nicely. The traditional control scheme is also slightly altered—one tone control affects the neck and middle pickups while the second tone control adjusts the bridge pickup for even more tonal variety.

Attention to minute details and master-level craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Greg Fessler’s carefully researched and constructed instruments—the limited edition Greg Fessler Builder Select ’69 Stratocaster is a premier example of his skill and dedication to the art of luthiery.

Plek Machine
Plek Machine
  • Does your guitar buzz when you play certain notes?
  • Do chords sound out of tune when you play them?
  • These are things that can be fixed when you have the frets and neck properly set up. Fine-tuning the neck and frets previously required hours of work by a skilled luthier. Now this can be accomplished in hours using out innovative German-built Plek machine.
  • This incredibly sophisticated, computer-controlled machine scans and evaluates the positions of the strings, string height, and frets along the length of the neck. It then compares the measured result to stored optimum values. It then cuts and smooths the frets and nut to achieve the best playability with minimum string height. The result is a fretboard that feels great with every note ringing out clear and true.
  • The Plek machine can also cut a nut and plane a finger board.
  • Check out our videos and see it in action.
  • To make an appointment to have your guitar Plek'ed give us a call at 847-432-6350.
