Fender Custom Shop Limited '56 Relic Stratocaster Wide Fade 2 Tone Sunburst Strat Guitar

This is the Fender Custom Shop Limited '56 Relic Stratocaster Wide Fade 2 Tone Sunburst Strat Guitar. The 2016 Limited Edition 1956 Relic Stratocaster takes you straight back to the instrument’s original era, with a deep-contoured lightweight ash body and a Relic lacquer finish that evokes years of hard-fought wear and tear. The sparkling trio of hand wound ’56 single-coil Stratocaster pickups features a hum-cancelling reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup along with a five-way switch, Vintage Modified wiring and Tone-Saver treble bleed circuit for modern tonal versatility. This guitar is super lightweight too at 6.8 lbs. 
 

Other premium features include a one-piece tinted quartersawn maple neck with a 10/’56 “V”-shaped profile, 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 6105 frets and bone nut, single-ply eggshell pickguard, vintage hardware and more. Includes Custom Shop Limited neck plate, case and certificate of authenticity. It has been given the killer Fender Relic treatment and is ready to play. The Wide Fade 2 Tone Sunburt Finish on this Strat gives it a really classic look too. It screams Vintage Fender with the slightly worn fretboard. It feels perfect like an old pair of jeans. If you are looking for a classic Fender Stratocaster, look no further. This Fender Stratocaster is a must have. 

 

Highlights
This Fender Custom Shop Strat boasts a 2 piece ash body with a lacquer finish. The tinted 1-piece quartersawn maple neck is wrapped with a heavy relic tinted lacquer finish and sports a large 10/56 "V" shape. The single-ply pickguard and 5-way pickup switch with three handwound Fender Custom Shop '56 single-coil pickups.

Relic Treatment - What's the deal???
This means the instrument is finished to resemble an instrument that has enjoyed a long life of heavy use. This includes significant wear and tear to the finish, dings to the body, neck, and headstock, and aged hardware. The end result is an instrument that looks like it's been around for a while and plays like a broken-in instrument.  After playing one of the Relic Strats there is no other way to go.  Just like your favorite old pair of jeans it just feels right.
