This Masterbuilt '57 Stratocaster Relic looks like it's been hanging in a barn outside of Nashville for the last 50 years—alas, that's the magic of the Fender Custom Shop. This is actually a brand new, highly-rare, vintage-style Strat, created by Master Builder Greg Fessler. Drawing on nearly three decades of experience in the Fender Custom Shop, Greg crafted this '57 Stratocaster with Fender Relic vintage style, gave it a Custom '57 vintage neck, and stocked it with Josefina hand wound Fat '50s Stratocaster pickups. This guitar is perfect for players and collectors who want to own a Masterbuilt piece of Fender history.

Fender Relic Vintage Style
The Fender Custom Shop's ability to make a new guitar look old is nothing short of amazing. The Relic Pale Sonic Blue finish on the '57 ash body makes this axe look like it's a half-century old. Fender paid painstaking attention to detail with their Relic finish on this guitar. You can see the Pale Sonic Blue color chipped away above the pickguard and on the back, as well as cracking across the body. The metal of the American vintage Strat Relic bridge looks lightly rusted. The knobs and pickups are colored coffee-white. Even the pickguard is designed to look weathered, using silver anodized aluminum.

Custom '57 Vintage Neck
This Stratocaster sports a '57 style Custom maple neck with soft "V" profile that'll feel wonderful in your fretting hand. The maple fingerboard is medium tinted with a nitro-lacquer finish that's worn to give this guitar the played-in feel of an actual vintage guitar. Continuing its epic detail, the back of the neck is also tastefully worn as if it's played for years by unwashed hands. Atop the neck is a classic Fender Stratocaster headstock, adorned with simplistic, fogged-metal tuners.

Josefina Hand Wound Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickups
Hand wound by Fender Master Pickup Winder Josefina Campos, these pickups are designed to provide a single-coil sound reminiscent of the late '50s Stratocasters. Crystal clear highs and deepened bass flow through these heavy formvar-coated wire pickups, which feature vintage staggered, hand-beveled Alnico 5 magnets. The Reverse Wound/Reverse Polarity middle pickup allows for hum-free performance in positions 2 and 4 while more 5-way switching gives this vintage-inspired Strat some modern flexibility.
