The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop '60 Stratocaster relic is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
The lightweight Ash body is finished in a lush Amber 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 NOS finish gives the appearance of a New Old Stock guitar, one that has been perfectly preserved since 1960 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The Flame Maple neck has a smooth finish and an AAA grade Rosewood fingerboard. With a 9.5" radius and 21 medium jumbo frets, the '60 Custom Shop Stratocaster can handle anything you throw at it without even breaking a sweat; it's supremely comfortable and well balanced. The '60 Strat oval C profile is a joy to play and offers a great platform for both rhythm and lead playing.
With a duo of 60s Strat single coils in the neck and middle positions pickups it delivers all the sweeping, versatile tones you would expect from a Strat. For a slightly different tonal flavour, a Fat 60s has been utilised at the bridge.
Supplied with a Fender Custom Shop hard case, this is a real sweet example of Custom Shop quality.
