Overview

A limited run from Fenders Custom Shop, this 56 Heavy Relic Stratocaster is meticulously crafted to provide players the sound, feel and vibe of a well played in Vintage guitar. Featuring era-accurate hardware, finishing, neck profiling and custom hand-wound 50's era pickups.

Stunning Vintage Design, Breakneck Performance

Sometimes it can take many years of sweat and tears before a guitar plays just the way it's owner wants it to. Anybody who has played a well kept vintage guitar will testify to the unmatched comfort, tone and playing feel that comes with aging. Well Fender are offering players a chance to own a guitar which has been delicately aged by their top craftsmen to replicate that magical feel usually attained from a vintage guitar.

These Guitars Are highly Collectible But Make No Mistake, These Are Real Players Instruments And Are Built For The Stage.

This 56 Custom Shop Stratocaster features an Ash body as used back in the mid 50's. Ash is said to take finishes better and is known for a very straight wood grain, making for a vintage aesthetic when lightly finished or varnished. Besides being a great canvas for painting, Ash is incredibly dense and resonates very well, increasing sustain and adding to the characteristics found on a true 2956 Stratocaster.
