C.SHOP 2022 LTD 1963 HEAVY RELIC STRATOCASTER

MORE ABOUT 1963 HEAVY RELIC® STRATOCASTER®

The Fender Custom Shop 1963 Relic® Stratocaster® takes you back to a pivotal period in the instrument’s history, when surf music was riding high and the Strat underwent some notable design mods. Its deep-contoured alder body comes in Three-Color Sunburst, Black, Candy Apple Red and Olympic White lacquer Relic finishes. Sparkling tone comes from three hand-wound Fat ’60s 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 comfortable ’63 “Style C” profile and small headstock, 9.5″-radius “round-laminated” rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets, three-ply mint green pickguard, vintage white control knobs, American Vintage bridge, and American Vintage tuning machines. Includes brown textured vinyl hard-shell case with red interior.
