Fender Custom Shop 57 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic in Faded Candy Apple Red R121549

Regular price $4,433.00 Sale

This is a slick Fender Custom Shop 57 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic in Faded Candy Apple Red! This electric guitar features a quartersawn maple neck, a 57 Soft V Neck profile, an alder body, a set of hand-wound 50's spec pickups, and weighs 7 lbs 8 oz. This combo of specs provides you with a highly playable guitar that truly nails the tones of the era! 

The neck is made from quartersawn Maple for added stability. It is then shaped to Fender's 57 Soft V Profile. This is a similar profile to what you'll find on an Eric Clapton Stratocaster. The neck measures .850" in depth at the 1st fret and .990" at the 12th. This is a nice, medium-sized neck profile with an ultra-comfortable feel. The fretboard radius is 9.5" and 6105 frets were selected for this model. A classic Fender nut width of 1.650" and Scale Length of 25.5" provides a familiar Fender feel. 

The body is made from Alder, the punchier, more assertive counterpart to Swamp Ash. This is the perfect wood choice for a Strat since it does well clean or dirty. Paired with the hand-wound 50s spec Strat pickups we get a less-bright-than-Ash tone but one that overdrives and plays dirty! This guitar is relic'ed or distressed, courtesy of the Artisan-Level Agers at the Fender Custom Shop Factory. Finished in Faded Candy Apple Red with a 1 ply white pickguard, this Strat looks killer!

The set of hand-wound 1950s spec Single Coil Stratocaster pickups installed in this guitar sound phenomenal! A master volume and 2 tone controls are tied to a 5-way switch that grants access to all the quintessential Strat tones you'll need. These hand-wound pickups react to small adjustments to your volume or tone controls. Increased dynamic response and the ultimate in musicality are just two benefits of getting Fender's Finest.
