Description

If you are looking for the vintage vibe and tone, but don't want to fork out the small fortune it would take to get it, this is your ax! What we have here is a Fender Relic 1960 Custom Shop and it feels like your favorite pair of old jeans! That powerful stratocaster tone is up front and present here, with three single coil Custom Shop "1960" pickups and period correct three way selector switch, you will be able to recreate the tones of the Rock n' Roll age. The relicing has been handled expertly by the Custom Shop, you would be hard pressed to tell this one apart from an actual 1960 Strat. In spite of its appearance, this strat doesn't play like an old guitar, the set up is perfect and smooth, ready for many years of great Rock to be played on it.

I have always been a fan of the Stratocaster, it is one of my favorite electric guitar sounds. This is right down my alley, I like that it isn't meant to be pristine, I have long been a proponent of not being too danty with instruments. They deserve some love marks!
 
I always have a bit of a chuckle when I see the "relic" Fenders, but I have to say that his one not only looks like an old one, but it sounds and feels like one as well. It's the kind of guitar that you can just sit and play for hours. And, you don't have to worry about taking care of it because it's already got the wear on it. I actually really loved playing it.
