John Cruz 60's Ultra Relic Strat Black JM inspired
Posted by John Priest


Specced out by me when i was a lot younger! JC's backorder wait is nearly 2 years now, so we literally jump for joy when we see that another one is the way to us.

This one is obviously inspired by JM's "BLK 1" Strat, this guitar has the "Ultimate Relic" treatment from John Cruz, which is pretty much the highest level of ageing available.

Specs Include:

  • Alder Body
  • Gold Hardware
  • 65 C shape neck
  • Medium Jumbo Frets
  • 9.5" Radius
  • 60 Strat Pickups

If you want the best Strat money can buy, you would do a lot worse than one of John Cruz's amazing Strats.

Full picture set in the listing to to the right.

John is one of the company directors and has been involved with Peach since 1998, so the things that he doesn't know about the products we sell, aren't worth knowing, sometimes he knows too much, quite sad really.

John handles a lot of our top end sales. On regular trips to the USA, when attending the NAMM show, or seeing his friends at Suhr, PRS, Gibson Custom and Taylor guitars to name but a few, he'll often hand pick beautiful figured woods for our own special run guitars.
