    A stunning Custom Shop Limited Edition of 100 instruments brings back the early Strat.

    Only 100 of these gorgeous 1955 Stratocaster Relic guitars have been produced by the Fender Custom Shop. The vibe and the specs are true to '55: the comfort contoured premium ash body, the nitrocellulose lacquer 2-tone sunburst finish, the '55-shape medium neck, the 9.5" radius maple fretboard with medium jumbo frets, and a bone nut. 3 custom-wound Fat '50s single-coils give this Limited Edition Strat voice, and the middle pickup is reverse wound for hum cancellation when it and another pickup are active. The finish has been given a Relic treatment offering the look of a seasoned veteran of countless hard rockin' gigs. In fact, this Strat looks a lot like the famous Brownie. Underneath its apparent wear is a supremely crafted, wonderful feeling, and killer sounding Custom Shop Master-built guitar. Includes a vintage tweed case, ashtray bridge cover, strap, cable, and a Fender Limited Edition certificate.

    a really, really great guitar, but overpriced.

    This is a really great guitar. The neck is perfect, and with these strats, its all about what kind of neck you like. The medium 55 "C" is really the best feeling neck Ive played on a strat and if this was the same price as the other custom shops then I would get it in a heartbeat. Other appointments are typical custom shop kit, although the fat 50s remain my least favorite set of custom shop pickups. Personally, I dont feel that this masterbuilt differentiates itself from the other custom shop fenders which are legitimately wonderful instruments (regardless of what style of guitar you like) and so its price tag is a bit much.
