An absolutely stunning guitar straight from Fender Custom Shop. The 1957 Heavy Relic Stratocaster has all the vibe and mojo you'd expect to feel when holding a well-played, vintage instrument. Fenders Custom Shop toil over each one of these guitar to make each of them unique both in tone and wear.
A Collectors Dream, A Players Best Friend
This particular Stratocaster is designed and built to as close a specification as possible to an original 1957 Strat. This goes as far as the neck profile, hand wound era-accurate pickups, headstock design and logo, tuners and even small touches such as the body contouring.
The finish on this guitar almost tells a story. If you look closely you'll see the remnants of a 'Sunburst' finish, buried underneath a 60's style 'Sea Foam Green finish'. It's incredible how when you hold this guitar it really does feels like it's been passed down generations when really, it's just some Custom Shop magic at work.
