This '57 Heavy Relic Stratocaster looks like its spent years upon years at the hands of an unforgiving hard rocker. The body is made from 2-piece lightweight alder and comes dressed in a Faded Sonic Blue thin nitro finish over 2-Color Sunburst, reflecting the look of a vintage Strat that was re-painted with a custom Fender color with the original sunburst finish starting to come through in the heavily worn places on the body. The finish displays plenty of nicks and dings, and is heavily checked with a great degree of wear in all the right places. For that coveted vintage well-played feel, the old-school soft "V" maple neck has been well-worn and broken-in while the worn maple fingerboard comes fitted with 21 6105 frets. A modern 9.5" fingerboard radius gives this vintage-inspired Strat more modern playability.

The 1957 Heavy Relic Stratocaster comes fully equipped with a set of vintage-style pickups that have also been aged, which includes a trio of Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster pickups. These pickups serve up all of those world-famous '50s Strat tones that helped make the instrument the legend that it is today while contemporary 5-way switching gives this traditional-style instrument its modern versatility, allowing you to dial in those sweet in between tones. To top it all off, all of the hardware exhibits substantial rusting down to each and every screw, just as a 50+ year old instrument would.

This package is completed by the vintage style tweed hardshell case, providing this 1957 Heavy Relic Stratocaster with the ultimate protection while maintaining its retro vibe. Included inside the case is a Fender Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, a black tweed Fender Custom Shop instrument cable, a Fender Custom Shop guitar strap, an "Ashtray" bridge cover, and Fender Custom Shop Custom Care Registration. Also included is a CruzTools tool box kit so you can properly maintain this prized instrument.
