You are looking at a Fender Custom Shop 1960 Heavy Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar White Blonde, serial number R74487. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 10 oz.)

This 1960 Heavy Relic Strat has the appearance and feel of a Strat that's gone through many decades of hard playing and gigging. The 2-piece ash body is finished in a very faded white blonde finish, so much so that you can actually see the woodgrains of the ash through the finish. The body finish has also been heavily relic'd in a way that replicates the true wear and tear of heavily used, vintage guitar. Even the maple neck of this Strat has been worn to accuracy as if it's been constantly played upon over the years, and gives the neck that truly broken-in feeling. The neck is carved into a comfortable, mid '60s oval “C” profile and features an Indian Rosewood fingerboard with 21 Jumbo Dunlop 6105 frets. A set of three single-coil '60s Strat pickups have also undergone the relic treatment, and produces that unparalelled vintage tone, reminiscent of the legendary Stratocasters of yesteryear. The hardware has been heavily relic'd, exhibiting years worth of rusting on the vintage Strat bridge and the vintage-style tuning machines, and even on the screws used on the pickguard, backplate and input jackplate have been rusted over.

Included with your purchase of this 1960 Heavy Relic Stratocaster is a protective brown tolex hardshell case with a gold plush-lined interior. Inside the case is a Custom Shop certificate of authenticity, a black tweed instrument cable, a leather strap, picks, a vintage-style bridge cover and a polishing cloth with Fender's custom shop logo. Also included in your purchase is a tool box kit with everything you need to properly maintain and adjust this fine instrument.
