Fender Custom Shop Tyler Bryant Shell Pink Stratocaster…$5k plus??

Is the Fender Custom Shop Tyler Bryant really worth $5,750? It is a nice Shell Pink finish and has an engraved anodised aluminium pickguard, but still...

The latest Fender Custom Shop Tyler Bryant Shell Pink Stratocaster is based on Bryant’s own 1960s style Shell Pink Strat, named “Pinky”. But is it really worth over $5 for an HSS Strat?

Custom Shop Tyler Bryant

This Fender Custom Shop Tyler Bryant Shell Pink Stratocaster is officially listed at $5,750 and I really cannot see how it is worth anywhere near that amount of money. There will be 60 made worldwide for this limited run. That makes it around $345,000 of sales, assuming they sell for the full MSRP.

Basic Construction

The main construction is based around a 2-piece select alder body and a ’60s Oval “C” maple neck. Plus, it has a 9.5″ radius and a 25.5″ flat laminated rosewood fretboard with 21 Narrow Tall frets and a set of Micarta White Dot inlays.

It comes in a classic Shell Pink nitro finish, that has been aged and has an engraved aluminium anodised pickguard.

Pickups are a set of a Custom Shop Hand-Wound ’60s Single-Coil Strat pickup in the neck, a Custom Shop Hand-Wound RWRP ’60s Single-Coil Strat in the middle and a “Shawbucker” humbucker at the bridge. These are wired by a pair of tone knobs, a master volume knob and a five-way blade pickup switch.

The hardware consists of a Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, plus a set of vintage-style tuning machines with the Fender logo.

Nothing particularly special here then really. It looks like a nice guitar, but really I cannot see how it is worth over $5k. Am I being mean and moody? What do you think of it?

MSRP – $5,750  inc hard case

  1. Jesus christ….I’d be embarrassed if I was TB. $5700 for a guitar. It’s a pure money grab, and I’m ashamed of TB for going along with it.
    Sorry, but I came up with Jimmy Herring and Scott Henderson. What those guys did with an off the shelf strat for the 60’s is legendary.
    The TB signature In a pretty in pink…..ah, I’m sure some up and coming legend with an off the shelf guitar will dash those lofty sales goals. He’ll, this isn’t even about music any more. TB, good luck, time is fleeting and your 15 minutes is getting…….
