What a cool Fender Custom Shop 1959 Special Stratocaster in Vintage White! A super flamed out maple neck looks amazing, especially with some aging toner and a slick relic job. AAA Flame is visible from every and any angle, especially on the headstock, though. This is one of those guitars you'll spot from across the room.
A 2 Piece Alder body was selected and chosen for its nice lightweight. The guitar weighs in at a very manageable 7 lbs 10 oz. Finished in Vintage White and aged beautifully, this Relic features a neck stripped of lacquer for a smooth and fast feel. All the other classic relic appointments are present. Make sure to take a look at the close up's for all the detailed pics.
The pickups are a set of hand-wound Ancho Poblano Strat Single Coil pickups. These pickups have just the right amount of output to hit your amp with just enough oomph. They also sweeten up beautifully and play nice with an amp set up for head-room. A Master Volume, 2 tone controls, and a 5-way switch give you access to all the sounds.
The neck is made from a AAA-rated piece of flame maple. Carved to a 59 C Shape, this Neck is thin and fast. With a 9.5" radius and big 6100 frets, the Strat shreds! The back of the neck is stripped of lacquer for a fast. smooth, and dry feeling ALL THE TIME. Never sticky or tacky, this neck ain't smooth, it's suh-moooooooooth!
