The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Relic Postmodern 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 a Classic Daphne Blue nitro varnish, 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 Journeyman finish gives the appearance of a guitar that has been sparingly played by a caring owner since the 50s and 60s, a few marks and scratches but no major ageing. The lacquer checking and crazing is super authentic.
The quarter-sawn Maple neck features a 9.5"-12” Hybrid radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. The '60s oval C shape and 21 narrow jumbo frets offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the Rosewood fingerboard adds a touch of luxury.
With a trio of handwound Fender Ancho Poblano 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!
