  • Description

    Fender Custom Shop is proud to introduce the 1970 Relic Stratocaster, which offers the classic tone, look and feel of a well-played Stratocaster from over 40 years ago. The alder body wears a relic 3-Color Sunburst finish that displays authentic wear-and-tear that would be expected from an old '70s workhorse Strat that's spent a lot of time in bars and clubs. The quartersawn maple neck sports a somewhat chunky 1969 "U" neck and a classic '70s-style large headstock. The round-laminated rosewood fingerboard features a more modern 9.5" radius and houses 21 narrow jumbo frets for superb playability.

    Authentic, legendary Strat tone is delivered by a trio of Custom Shop Fat '60s single-coil pickups, and just as you'd expect from an old-school Strat, the middle pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity for hum-free performance when used in conjunction with the neck pickup or bridge pickup. Dial in a wide range of classic Fender tones via the versatile 5-way switch, dual Tone controls and the Master Volume control.

    For that unmistakable vintage Strat vibe, the 1970 Relic Stratocaster comes equipped with vintage white control knobs, a 3-ply parchment pickguard, and American Vintage nickel/chrome hardware including a 6-saddle synchronized tremolo and a set of  tuners. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case and includes a Fender Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, an instrument cable, a guitar strap and a CruzTools tool kit.
