The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop NAMM 2017 '60 Relic Stratocaster is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
With the appearance of a vintage guitar this Custom Shop model benefits from all the playability and reliability of a brand new one. The lightweight Ash body is finished in an incredible Aged Olympic White nitro lacquer, period correct, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other finishes. The super authentic relic'd appearance gives a fresh from the road feel and adds to the vintage appeal.
The AA-Grade Flame Maple neck features a 9.5"-12" compound radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. The '65 Strat C shape and 21 Sanko 6105 frets offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the AAA grade Rosewood fingerboard adds a touch of luxury.
With a trio of handwound Fender 60/63 pickups it delivers all the sweeping, versatile tones you would expect from a Strat. Rich and smooth, it's a premium Stratocaster tone.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
