OVERVIEW

Fender started with a hand-selected premium ash body, picked one of their favorite and most requested neck shapes (the 10/'56) and rounded the instrument off with a set of Fat '50s pickups. Built with the player in mind, it also has the flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius and taller 6105 frets. Finished with nickel/chrome hardware and 1-ply pickguard, the 1956 Relic Strat is a beauty to hear, see and play. Includes case.

A historic instrument with mojo to spare.
