Tthe Fender Custom Shop is proud to introduce the 1963 Relic Stratocaster, bringing you back to the early '60s when the popularity of surf music was at its peak and when the now-legendary Stratocaster underwent some noteworthy design modifications.

The deep-contoured alder body comes dressed in a nitro lacquer Candy Apple Red Relic finish that mimics the authentic wear-and-tear you'd expect from a 50+ year old workhorse. The perfect blend of classic and contemporary, the quartersawn maple neck features a mid-'60s oval "C" profile, a period-correct small headstock, and a "round-laminated" rosewood fingerboard with narrow jumbo frets and a modern 9.5" radius.

Equipped with a trio of Custom Shop Hand-Wound '60s Strat Single-Coil pickups, the 1963 Relic Stratocaster delivers all that sparkling single-coil spank and snap that helped make the Strat the iconic instrument that it is today. The pickups are wired through a Master Volume control, dual Tone controls, and a modern 5-way blade for added versatility. The reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup also helps combat that unwanted single-coil hum in the 2nd and 4th switch positions.

The nickel/chrome vintage-style hardware has also been relic'd for added retro mojo, which includes a single "wing" sting tree, American Vintage tuners, and an American Vintage bridge. The 11-hole three-ply mint green pickguard and vintage white plastic part further enhance the aged, old-school vibe. Comes complete with a hardshell case, Certificate of Authenticity, strap, cable, CruzTOOLS tool kit and polishing cloth.
