Early 1960 saw a major transition of the Strat from its original 1950s version. New features that year included a rosewood "slab" fingerboard, three-ply "mint green" nitrocellulose pickguard, thinner oval "C" neck profile, and a tall metal spacer on the string guide. Further, it was the last year of the original "spaghetti" headstock decal before the addition of patent numbers.
For this recreation, we’ve added several compelling player-centric features for greater tonal options and a heightened playing experience. The Heavy Relic lacquer finish on the two-piece alder body imparts the look and feel of guitar that’s been played for years. The tinted quartersawn maple neck has a 1960-style oval "C" back shape, topped by a rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets and a modern 9.5” radius for comfortable feel when bending anywhere along the neck. Three hand-wound Texas Special pickups are connected to Strat 1/2 Blender wiring, which creates seven possible tonal options through neck-pickup blending in switch positions 1 and 2. Other features include Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, wing string tree with tall metal spacer, and a bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
