OVERVIEW

A thoroughly contemporary take on a time-honored classic.

The Postmodern Journeyman Relic Stratocaster is elegantly designed with a reappraisal of modern assumptions. A thoroughly contemporary take on a time-honored classic, it has a lightweight ash body with a comfortably contoured heel, a quartersawn maple neck with a finely sculpted '60s C profile, a fast compound-radius (9.5"-12") round-laminated maple fingerboard with 21 6105 frets, and three sparkling Fat '60s single-coil pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) with modern five-way switching and a special Tone-Saver treble-bleed network that keeps tone consistent at any volume (no loss of highs when decreasing volume).

Other premium features include a three-ply parchment pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, staggered tuning machines (no string tree), Schaller strap locks and Fender F logo engraved neck plate. Available in Journeyman Relic lacquer finishes, which impart the appearance of years of aging and light use without heavy wear and tear. Includes black textured vinyl hard-shell case.

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Journeyman Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have been playing Strats since the '60,s. This is the best I have ever played or owned (and there have been many). The tone in all positions is perfect. Wiring the neck and middle pick-up to the first tone control provides amazing results in position 4. The neck profile is unbelievably smooth. Without a doubt the Custom Shop got it right with this design! It could not be better!
