Fender 2018 Limited Edition 1960 Roasted Stratocaster Heavy Relic Custom Shop
Inspired by a classic 1960 Stratocaster and tweaked for modern players, the Limited Edition ’60 Roasted Strat Heavy Relic begs to be picked up and played. We started with a roasted alder body and ultra-stable quartersawn maple neck with a “ ’60 Oval C”-shaped profile, ideal for almost any playing style. Then, we roasted the wood, making it more resonant for enhanced sustain, and adding a delectable chocolatelike aesthetic. The heavy Relic lacquer finish gives it the look and comfortable playing feel of a well-loved instrument that’s been in service for decades. Hot-rodded with a trio of hand-wound Ancho Poblano single-coil pickups—including a RWRP middle pickup to reduce hum— and Vintage Modified #2 wiring, this Strat sings with spicy, balanced tone that can make your music come alive in new ways. The 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard features extra-rolled edges and wears 21 57110 super-jumbo frets for sublime playing feel.
Other features include a nitro Tortoiseshell pickguard, 5-way pickup switch, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer.
Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
