Here is what Fender wrote about this stunning model, when it was released in 2013:
The Fender Custom Shop '60s Stratocaster Heavy Relic is an homage to Fender's music-shaping history. This collectible is built to exacting specs of its vintage original including body contours, neck shape, fingerboard radius, pickups and electronics. This exquisite '60s Stratocaster Heavy Relic is fitted with a unique selection of pickups, giving you the pristine spank and sparkle of the genuine article.
The Fender Custom Shop '60s Stratocaster Heavy Relic is loaded for tone. This axe doesn't just sport a trio of single-coil pickups, it sports a trio of pickups that embody the best of Strat tones through out the ages. Specifically, it comes with a '69 neck pickup, a Fat '50s middle pickup, and a Texas Special bridge pickup. No matter what kind of music you'll be playing, this heavy relic beauty has you covered.
You've probably noticed that there's a bit of Candy Apple Red peeking through some parts of this Fender Custom Shop '60s Stratocaster Heavy Relic's finish. That's because this '60s Heavy Relic Strat faithfully re-creates the worn-through 2-tone phenomenon that some of the few heavily used '60s Stratocasters still around display today. Back in the day, when a guitar was ordered in a custom color, Fender just painted over a guitar that was already finished and sent it out. Today, those cool vintage guitars occasionally show off a hint of both finishes, giving it a cool and unique vintage vibe.
As you can imagine, a true 1960 Strat would show signs of wear and tear, and the Fender Custom Shop '60s Stratocaster Heavy Relic is finished to represent those years of playing. The worn finish on the body and neck, and the aged and slightly rusty hardware will make you wonder if it really isn't a true vintage guitar. And with its unique selection of single-coil pickups, the '60s Stratocaster Heavy Relic packs vintage tone to match.
