FENDER CUSTOM SHOP LIMITED EDITION '57 STRATOCASTER RELIC - WIDE FADE 2 TONE SUNBURST
We were lucky enough to get invited to the 2022 Fender Custom Shop Dealer event and managed to grab 1 of the ultra exclusive instruments!
It starts with this '57 Stratocaster Reissue. Classic Strat features and Custom Shop wood selection! The Body is resonant alder with gorgeous grain structure and comes in at 7.4 pounds. It is perfectly finished and Relic'd in Wide Fade 2-Tone Sunburst. It absolutely shimmers under lights.
The neck is rock solid Maple. The neck has our preferred 'no finish' feel and is a '57 style Soft V shape. .850" at the 1st and .990" at the 12th with 9.5" radius and 6105 narrow-tall frets. It is vibrant and plays impeccably.
The tones are supplied by a trio Custom Shop exclusive pickups. The Neck is a Handwound '57 Strat, the Middle a Handwound Fat 50's and the Bridge is a Handwound Texas Special. The guitar is beefy and clear in all positions and is supremely versatile. A ton of thought went in to this pickup set and it delivers.
Includes Tweed Hardshell Fender Custom Shop case and COA
