OVERVIEW

Vintage specs and a relic treatment make it a collector's piece for the stage.

The 2016 Limited Edition 1956 Relic Stratocaster takes you straight back to the instrument’s original era, with a deep-contoured lightweight ash body and a Relic lacquer finish that evokes years of hard-fought wear and tear. The sparkling trio of hand-wound ’56 single-coil Stratocaster pickups features a hum-cancelling reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup, with a five-way switch, Vintage Modified wiring and Tone-Saver treble bleed circuit for modern tonal versatility.

Other premium features include a one-piece tinted quartersawn maple neck with a 10/’56 “V” profile, 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 6105 frets and bone nut, single-ply eggshell pickguard, vintage hardware and more. Includes Custom Shop Limited neck plate, case and certificate of authenticity.
