  • Description

    The Fender Custom Shop takes you back the good ol' days with this vintage-inspired Strat. This 1962 Heavy Relic Stratocaster has all the vibe and character of a well-loved reliable workhorse that has been on tour for decades in the hands of an unforgiving rocker. The lightweight alder body wears a heavily-worn, dinged-up faded surf green finish over black, which mimics the look of an old custom repaint job with the original finish resurfacing along the worn edges and belly contour. Offering a well-played, vintage feel, the maple neck is worn along the back and carved into a comfortable mid '60s-style oval "C" profile. The round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard features a more modern 9.5" radius and 21 6105 frets for more contemporary playability while aged dot inlays cater to the classic style of this Strat.

    A set of hand-wound Custom Shop Fat '60s pickups dish out those unmistakable vintage single-coil tones that made the original Strats legendary. The vintage modified electronics include a more modern 5-way pickup selector, and the reverse wound/reverse polarity pickup delivers noise-free performance when paired with the neck or the bridge pickup.

    All of the chrome hardware and plastic parts have been aged to accurately reflect the appearance of a 54 year old guitar. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case and includes the Certificate of Authenticity, an instrument cable, a guitar strap and a CruzTools tool kit.
