A modern twist on an iconic Stratocaster with many unique features.
The Fender Custom Shop LTD - Q2 Limited 1970 Stratocaster electric guitar is a modern twist on an iconic Fender Strat that evokes an era when Fender changed materials and features, which also affected the music these guitars was used for. The introduction of the three-bolt neck system came in the early 1970s, along with a "micro-tilt" adjustment that allowed users to angle the pitch of the neck to their liking.
The Fender Stratocaster's cast tremolo bridge also debuted around this time, as well as the non-beveled pickup magnets. This guitar has a flatter fingerboard radius and taller 6105 frets for easier string bending. The pickups are hand-wound by Abigail Ybarra, who was hired at Fender in 1956. A Custom Shop Relic finish on the LTD - Q2 1970 Stratocaster simulates the natural wear and tear of years of heavy use. Includes case, strap, cable, and Limited Edition Certificate of Authenticity.
