What a cool Fender Custom Shop 59 Special Stratocaster Journeyman Relic in Charcoal Frost Metallic! 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 4 oz. Finished in Charcoal Frost Metallic 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's. These pickups have just the right amount of output to hit your amp with just enough oomph. These pickups 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.
