OVERVIEW

An accurate reproduction with an alder body, rosewood fingerboard and '60s Strat pickups.

At the dawn of the 1960s, with manned space flight just beginning, the Stratocaster stood poised for a wild new decade full of exciting and innovative new music. Music history beckoned as never before-sound would be wrung from the Stratocaster in the '60s that its designers and players of the previous decade couldn't possibly have dreamed up.

The Fender Custom Shop 1960 Stratocaster Relic Electric Guitar features an alder body with lacquer finish, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, 9.5" radius, 6105 frets, 1960 Stratocaster pickups with 5-way switching, custom pickguard and relic vintage hardware. This detailed Custom Shop reproduction of a 1960 Strat was built utilizing original tooling and production techniques of the era. And its Relic finish treatment gives it the look of a well-traveled and heavily played axe, although it is absolutely new in setup and playability. Includes deluxe hardshell case.

      Comments about Fender Custom Shop 1960 Stratocaster Relic Electric Guitar:

      Random series of events led to me trade a 1966 bone stock original Sunburst Stratocaster to Guitar Center for a dot neck 335. A few other pre-CBS instruments were involved in the trade. I am a huge vintage fan. I liquidated my collection to acquire a '61 335 for neck. I needed a back up...I record and perform, and like a wide brush to paint my songs. I was intrigued by the relics. The price seemed high, relative to an amazing vintage for a few quid more. But alas, these guitars have soul. I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. I play it side by side with my '61 335. It's got soul, and at this price point, is as good as it gets if you cannot afford good vintage. These guitars closely mimic the feel of the neck (albeit with missing variations), the weight of the body, the resonance, and the sound. These are very interesting pickups, capable of extraordinary clarity and packing a serious punch. It is not a "grey bottom" knock off to my ear, but is quite remarkable, indeed. I really do like the fact that I have a knock off of my old '60 and it already has nicks and dings. I can't put it down! Play one, you'll get it.
