This Used 2013 Fender Custom Shop 63 Stratocaster Relic in Shell Pink is in on consignment and it is in fantastic shape. It has seen only a few hours of play as part of a massive collection and included the matching Strat we have that was actually finished the same day according to the cert! The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.
The neck is made from a quartersawn piece of 5/4 Maple. It's shaped to a 60's Style Oval C shape then topped with a dark rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is then shaped to have a 9.5" radius. 6105 Sanko frets have been installed for a nice tall fret. With a depth of .790" at the 1st fret, .930" at the 12th fret, we have a thin neck in the lower position that tapers to a fuller feel. 1.650" nut width and 25.5" scale length round out the important stuff.
Shell Pink is a classic Fender color, one of our favorite soft colors from the company. This one has patina-ed nicely over the last 7 years, so the finish has darkened a bit over a factory-fresh Shell Pink. It meshes well with the 3 Ply Mint Green Pickguard, another tasty visual touch.
An interesting set of all Handwound pickups are present. With a 69 in the neck, 65 in the middle, and 60's in the bridge, we get a range of outputs and tones, making this one of the more sonically versatile Strats we have seen in quite some time!
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring, and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
