Fender Custom Shop 1960 Relic Stratocaster - Aged Olympic White - 2017 Collection
With the fast-playing, comfortable feel of a guitar that’s seen more than a few stages, the Custom Shop 1960 Relic Stratocaster unites authentic vintage style and sound with contemporary features. The lightweight two-piece select alder body bears a color-over-color paint scheme, finished with nitrocellulose lacquer to let the wood breathe with pure Fender tone, while the tinted quartersawn maple neck has a comfortable “Oval C”-shaped profile, and wears the same Heavy Relic finish as the body.
The trio of hand-wound 60/63 Strat pickups includes a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup, reducing RF- and EMI-induced hum in positions two and four. A five-way switch and modified wiring—including a Tone-Saver treble-bleed circuit—selects pickups in almost any combination while preserving your tone, no matter where the instrument’s volume is set.
