Fender Custom Shop 1963 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic in Shell Pink R90826

Regular price $3,760.00 Sale

At the Music Gallery, we are huge fans of the Journeyman Relic, huuuge. Evident by our collection of them, usually around a dozen in stock at all times. We have concocted our own 63 Stratocaster with some of our favorite specs but in a variety of cool colors. This one is finished in Shell Pink, one of our favorites. We joke about how they put something in the Pink Paint that makes it sound so good. Part of the Fender Pastel Collection, if you love Surf Green and Sonic Blue, this will surely tickle you.... pink. Sorry, too easy. It's a Journeyman Relic which means enough aging so that it looks like a vintage guitar but one that was treated with love and respect despite. Light dings and dents with a more tasteful and subtle approach to the aging process combine with some weather checking to give you an authentic vibe.

The neck is made from a piece of quartersawn maple that will off added stability. It's topped with a AAA grade piece of Rosewood that is nice and dark. The fretboard is carved to a 9.5" radius and then topped with Sanko 6105 Frets for a narrow but tall fretwire that performs great for the lead player and rhythm guy alike.

A set of Handwound Single Coil pickups from Josephina are installed. They are wound to 1960's spec so they have all the bell-like top end, smooth mid range, and warm low end you'll expect. They sound great in all 5 positions. They provide nice quack and expression in positions 2 and 4 while 1,3, and 5 are powerful but very well balanced both from string to string and pickup to pickup.

Whether you're looking for Stratocasters, Telecasters, Precision Basses or Jazz Basses we are able to help you design or find whatever the special instrument you're looking for may be!
