Description

To mark the 70th anniversary of the iconic Stratocaster, the Fender Custom Shop presents the Limited Edition Roasted '54 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic. This guitar features a two-piece select ash body with an offset seam on the treble side, providing exceptional resonance with clear highs, balanced midrange, and tight lows. It comes with a striking Journeyman Relic lacquer finish in Desert Sand, adding to its vintage appeal.

The guitar is equipped with a one-piece roasted quartersawn maple neck, crafted with a special 70th-anniversary Soft "V" profile based on a historic Strat neck from July 1954. The neck is complemented by a 9.5" radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall (6105) frets and a 1.625" bone nut, offering smooth playability and precise intonation.

Three Custom Shop hand-wound '54 Strat pickups provide the classic Stratocaster sound, characterised by clear, bell-like highs. These pickups are connected through vintage '54 Strat wiring with a wax paper capacitor and five-way switching, giving players versatile tonal options.

This limited edition model combines 1950s-inspired aesthetics with premium features. It includes an eight-hole gold anodised pickguard, 1954-style ABS white pickup covers and control knobs, a Custom Shop vintage synchronised tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuners, and a disc string tree. Additional special touches include a 70th Anniversary Stratocaster neck plate, a deluxe embroidered hardshell case, a strap, and a certificate of authenticity, making it a true collector's item.
