Fender Custom Shop 1961 Stratocaster Relic in Vintage White CZ537618

Regular price $3,840.00 Sale

The shades of white offered from the Fender Custom Shop are plentiful to say the least. Vintage White is one of our favorite opaque white finishes due to the slightly yellow patina it takes on with out turning it flat out yellow. This one is quite strikingt! We have all the classic Relic spots like chips, dings, dents, some arm wear, buckle rash, eye catching weather checking, and the lacquer on the back of the neck is thinned a touch. Aside from being beautiful, it plays magnificently and has a set of handwound pickups from Josephina that are so versatile, it's hard to imagine all these tones coming from one guitar!

The neck is made from a piece of Quartersawn Maple and carved to a very comfortable 60 Style Oval C neck Profile. It's a little on the slim side, more like a Medium-Slim feel. It is topped with a AAA Rosewood Fingerboard that is cut to a 9.5" radius and fretted with Jescar 57110 fret wire that does the Vintage Tall thing perfectly. We have classic Fender nut width and scale length that give the guitar an immediately familiar feel. An Alder body helps gives the guitar a powerfully forward sounding guitar. Weighing in at 7 lbs 12 oz, this Strat is a little heavier than some of our other feather weights but is still extremely comfortable when on a strap due to being well balanced.

The pickups are a set of the famed Texas Special Single Coil pickups but these are handwound by Josephina. Josephina is the Fender Custom Shop's Master-Winder, if you will, and no one winds a pickup like her! These Texas Specials are nice and hot when yoiur volume is on 10. Great ffor pushing a tube amp into drive or flat out gain, if the traditional Single Coil is a little too weak for you, you MUST hear a set of these handwound's! They are tied to a master volume, 2 tone controls and a 5 way switch allowing you to easily dial in all the classic tones.
