For three decades, the Fender Custom Shop has been making dream guitars come true. Whether your ultimate Fender is a sparkle-finished hot-rod Tele or simply a sunburst Stratocaster with big frets and a modern ’board radius, the Custom Shop has it covered, and then some.

Across 132 pages packed with breathtaking photography and insightful new features and interviews, The Fender Custom Shop Bible charts the rise of the Custom Shop from its early days in the 1980s. We talk to the founders who started it all and lift the lid on how the Relic phenomenon began – spoiler alert, it didn’t have anything to do with Keith Richards!

Fast-forward to 2017 and we head to Corona in sunny California to catch up with each and every one of Fender’s present-day Master Builders. We find out what makes the Custom Shop’s best-of-the-best tick and hear their tales of building stellar instruments for the biggest names in the business.

And if you are thinking about ordering a Custom Shop guitar in the near future, be sure to read our in-depth reviews of a selection of the finest new Strats and Teles in the Fender catalogue.

Join us then, as we pay tribute to the Fender Custom Shop’s 30th Anniversary and celebrate three decades of world-class guitar making and a whole lot of rock ’n’ roll along the way. Being surrounded by so many killer guitars is a tough job, but somebody has to do it…
