Overview

A painstaking recreation with a few custom features.

The Fender Custom Shop 1955 Journeyman Relic Stratocaster NAMM Limited Edition takes you straight back to the instrument's original era, with a lightweight ash body in lacquer Relic finishes that evoke years of hard-fought wear and tear. The sparkling trio of hand-wound '55 single-coil Stratocaster pickups is mounted on a single-ply eight-hole white pickguard with five-way switching for modern tonal versatility.

Other premium features include a quartersawn maple neck with highly worn Heavy Relic treatment on the back, 9.5 in.-radius maple fingerboard with 21 6105 frets, rock-solid American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, American Vintage tuning machines and a Custom Shop Limited Edition engraved neck plate. Includes hardshell case, Limited Edition Certificate of Authenticity and Fender Custom Shop 30th Anniversary Decal.
