You are looking at a Fender Custom Shop 2018 NAMM Limited Edition '60 Relic Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar Faded Lake Placid Blue, serial number CZ537528. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 12.7 oz.)

This limited edition '60 Strat with vintage Relic finish was made for the infamous NAMM show, where the biggest names in the music industry put their finest products on display. This beautiful vintage-inspired piece of Fender craftsmanship features a '60s style design with Faded Lake Placid Blue Relic finish. It sports a maple neck with premium rosewood 'board along with hand-wound Fender Custom Shop Poblano pickups. This guitar is for the Strat enthusiast who desires a unique limited edition guitar with some extra scorch and plenty of awesome vintage appeal.

'60 Style Design with Faded Lake Placid Blue Relic Finish
The centerpiece of this awesome guitar is its Relic finish package. Fender used a roasted alder body and covered it in Faded Lake Placid Blue to provide a warmer, more broken-in sound with the looks to match. It was then fashioned to make the guitar look aged – note the heavily worn edges along the outside contour and the more nuanced chips across the whole body. The metal of the American Vintage Strat Relic bridge looks lightly rusted and the headstock features foggy metallic tuners.

Maple Neck with Premium Rosewood 'Board
The neck of this guitar was cut from roasted quartersawn maple and carved into a cozy custom '60 style oval "C" shape. Capped with a high-grade AAA rosewood fingerboard with a 12" radius, this Strat offers a fantastic playing feel from the nut to the last fret. Enhancing the vintage vibe, the neck is finished in nitro lacquer while the fretboard is adorned with vintage clay inlays.

Hand-Wound Fender Custom Shop Poblano Pickups
Giving that signature Strat sound some extra zing and sizzle, the Fender Ancho Poblano pickups are wound hot, with each pickup individually calibrated and overwound for some sweet, high-output sound. The neck and middle are crafted with staggered alnico 3 pole pieces, while the bridge has an added flush-mount alnico 5. These pickups are right at home in this vintage axe, affording a wide range of '60s sounds via the five-way pickup selector.
