Fender Custom Shop Limited 1960s Heavy Relic Stratocaster - Faded Taos Turquoise

    Put Your Hands On This Innovative Design To Feel The Pulse Of History - The Fender Custom Shop 2017 Limited Edition 1960s Heavy Relic Stratocaster In Faded Taos Turquoise With Compound Radius Neck

    With the fast-playing, comfortable feel of a guitar that’s seen more than a few stages, the Custom Shop 1960 Relic Stratocaster unites authentic vintage style and sound with contemporary features. The lightweight two-piece select alder body bears a color-over-color paint scheme, finished with nitrocellulose lacquer to let the wood breathe with pure Fender tone, while the tinted quartersawn maple neck has a comfortable “Oval C”-shaped profile, and wears the same Heavy Relic finish as the body.

    This Fender Custom Shop 2017 NAMM Limited Edition shows off the very heaviest of the Custom Shop relic finish treatments, designed to evoke decades of the most punishing play and touring. From serious dinging and wear to intensely discolored hardware and finish, this version is the true battle-hardened workhorse of the Custom Shop collection.

    The trio of hand-wound 60/63 Strat pickups includes a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup, reducing RF- and EMI-induced hum in positions two and four. A five-way switch and modified wiring—including a Tone-Saver treble-bleed circuit—selects pickups in almost any combination while preserving your tone, no matter where the instrument’s volume is set.

    Other phenomenal features include a comfortably modern 9.5”-radius slab rosewood fingerboard, 21 Jescar 6100 jumbo frets, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity.
