The Fender Custom Shop embodies the very finest in Fender imagination and design, elevating craft to artistry with instruments that strikingly connect all those who experience them with Fender’s rich history and legacy.

In every art form there are those who have mastered their craft so thoroughly, through years of training and experience, their work routinely commands extra acclaim and admiration, not to mention outright awe. These astonishing artisans are the Master Builders of the Fender Custom Shop; a select group of the most talented builders recognized around the world for their matchless skill, limitless imagination and utter devotion to their art.

Built like the models that came off the line in 1969, played by renowned guitarists such as Gilmour, Blackmore and Hendrix, this guitar has the unforgettable, classic feel that only the Fender Custom Shop can create. Its sleek, contoured body is made of alder, noted for bright, balanced and resonant tone. With a wide 3-color sunburst finish that not only looks great, its thin nitrocellulose lacquer allows the guitar's body to breathe with extra resonance, sustain, and a more natural sound. The tinted maple neck is quartersawn for added stiffness and sweetened tone, boasting an oversized headstock and mid-60s Oval "C"-shaped back profile. It is topped off with a round-laminated AAA rosewood fingerboard and 21 – 6105 Sanko frets. The Relic appearance shows the worn-in wear of a guitar that has experienced many years of regular use in clubs and bars. Marks that tell a story, finish checking all over the body; scars dings and dents from bridge to headstock.

The pickguard is loaded with sweet-sounding Custom Shop Fat '60s Strat pickups that deliver 1960s single-coil Stratocaster sound with plenty of crisp articulation. The overwound design gives these pickups added low-end punch for an extra shot of modern attitude. Each pickup is hand-wound for distinctly unique and personalized character which is what made the original Fender pickups so sought after and prized. Custom Shop Fat '60s pickups are outfitted with beveled alnico 2 magnets, which offer warm lows, rich midrange and mellow highs, capturing the sound of aged pickups from the early '60s for luscious vintage-inspired tones. The middle pickup is also reverse-wound reverse-polarity (RWRP) for superior hum cancelation. The traditional control scheme has one master volume, with tone controls for the neck and middle position pickups and a blade selector that allows 5-way switching for tonal variety.

Other premium features include white mother of pearl fretboard and side dot inlays, 4-bolt neck plate, Red Dime capacitor, period-accurate F-style tuning machines and original Stratocaster 6-point tremolo made using original die-cast moulds and punch presses purchased by Leo Fender. Includes deluxe hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
