Fender Custom Shop Ltd '59 Roasted Stratocaster Heavy Relic - Aged Fiesta Red

    Subject Yourself To Authentic Tone And Aesthetic - The Fender Custom Shop Ltd '59 Roasted Stratocaster Heavy Relic In Aged Fiesta Red

    1959 was a pivotal year in the annals of Stratocaster history. In May of '59, Fender revised the way necks were made, switching from a one-piece maple neck to maple capped with a "slab" rosewood fingerboard. This Limited Edition '59 Roasted Strat Heavy Relic takes it to the next level. It's been said the neck has the most effect on a guitar’s tone after the pickups; a fat neck equals fat tone. Fender Custom Shop took that to heart when crafting this guitar, giving it a fat "'59 C"-shaped profile and roasted the quartersawn maple neck, topping it with a AAA rosewood fingerboard. Roasting the wood gives it delicious resonance by removing moisture, while also darkening it for a sumptuous aesthetic. 

    The two-piece alder body wears an Aged Fiesta Red Heavy Relic lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a well-loved guitar that's seen countless stages. The trio of Hand-Wound Texas Special single-coil pickups gives that classic Fender warm vintage tone. Other features include 1-ply Gold Anodized pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, and bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
