The Fender Stratocaster is probably the most iconic guitar ever produced and the Fender Custom Shop NAMM 2018 '60 Stratocaster relic is a fitting addition to this legendary line.
A traditional Alder body is finished in the iconic Faded Aged Candy Apple Red, one of Fenders all time classic finishes, it's a real beauty! Authentically aged, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. The thin nitro finish also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively.
The quartersawn Roasted Maple neck has a smooth finish and an AAA grade Rosewood fingerboard. With a 12" radius and 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.
The defining feature is the signature Ancho Poblano singlecoil pickups, getting progressively hotter from neck to bridge, they are uniquely calibrated and offer a distinct tonal flavour. Overwound by hand they are the holy grail of single coils.
Supplied with a Fender Custom Shop hard case, this is a real sweet example of Custom Shop quality.
