This is a sweet 57 Stratocaster Relic from the Fender Custom Shop! Finished in Two Tone Sunburst with a Maple neck, this is about as classic looking a Strat as you'll ever see. While it looks vintage, it has some modern, player-friendly specs that make it a real winner.
A quarter sawn maple neck has been carved to a 57 soft profile. If you have ever played a Clapton Strat you have felt something similar. The fingerboard radius is 9.5" for easy bends and chording while the 6105 frets make it play fast and clean. Classic nut width of 1.650" and 25.5" scale length combine for that super comfy, snappy Fender thang.
A set of hand wound 50's pickups nail the tones of the era. They are tied to the classic Strat controls that include a master volume, 2 tone controls and a 5 way switch. They have a spanky tone to them along with nice quack in positions 2 and 4. Certainly on the bright side but not harsh or brash, this beauty has a tight low end that keeps it fom sounding tubby or loose.
