COMFORTABLE & CRISP
For every guitarist who’s dreamt of combining the biting twang of a Telecaster® with the sleek, ergonomic contours of a Strat, we created this limited-edition guitar: The Whiteguard Strat. Tele hardware, electronics and playing feel? Check. Ash Strat body with lacquer finish and custom-shaped white pickguard? Check. The unique style and sound you can only get from Fender? You better believe that’s a check.
- Ash body with lacquer finish
- “Modern C”-shaped maple Tele neck; 9.5”-radius fingerboard
- Fender Custom Shop ‘51 Nocaster single-coil bridge and neck pickups
- Limited Edition neck plate; silver Fender logo
- Includes hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity
Strong and dense, with a striking grain pattern, ash is classic Fender tone wood. Notably resonant, it offers clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end.
The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.
Combining a modern 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with narrow-tall frets gives this instrument a comfortable fret-hand feel while making it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
CUSTOM SHOP ‘51 NOCASTER PICKUPS
Created to accurately mimic the original Nocaster pickups, these period-correct single-coil pickups have tight low end and clear, balanced midrange.
AMERICAN PROFESSIONAL TELE BRIDGE
Blending vintage style with modern feel and performance, this Telecaster bridge sports three compensated brass barrel saddles for accurate intonation and vintage-informed tone.
A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, as well as being an authentic original-era Fender design element.
