C. SHOP 2015 T.MACHINE 1957 STRATOCASTER RELIC

MORE ABOUT 1957 RELIC® STRATOCASTER®

The Fender Custom Shop 1957 Relic® Stratocaster® takes you straight back to the pivotal year when the instrument was largely perfected into the form known worldwide today. Its deep-contoured alder body comes in Two-Color Sunburst, Black and HLE Gold lacquer Relic finishes, while an ash-body model is available in a White Blonde lacquer Relic finish. Sparkling tone comes from three hand-wound ’50s Stratocaster single-coil pickups (reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup) with modern five-way switching.

Other premium features include a quartersawn maple neck with a ’57 “soft V” profile and small headstock, 9.5″-radius maple fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets, single-ply parchment pickguard, vintage white control knobs, American Vintage bridge, and American Vintage tuning machines. Includes hard-shell tweed case with gold interior.
