The "Chicago Special" '59 Strat

"Outfitted with handpicked specs like an oval, C-shape, Indian rosewood neck with 9.5-inch radius for a comfortable reinterpretation of this historic instrument."

"The 1959 Fender Stratocaster saw a lot of changes," writes Michael Gilmer. "It started the year with the maple neck and fretboard. But, by mid-1959 the maple neck and fretboard was changed to a maple neck with a glued on Brazilian rosewood fretboard and the now-famous clay dot fretboard markers. I loved this change, as the sound of the Strat got darker because of the rosewood."
