Product description

This Aged Charcoal Frost Metallic Strat is a beautiful reproduction of a vintage 1970

Fender Stratocaster, featuring an alder body, handwound pickups and the characteristic large headstock.

It has some modern specs as well: the 1969 "U" shaped neck radius is combined with a slightly flatter-than-vintage 9.5" fretboard radius, which is most common nowadays on Fender guitars. Electronically, the guitar features a Greasebucket tone circuit, making its controls extra usable, as well as a reverse-wound-reverse-polarity middle pickup, which enables hum free operation in pickup positions 2 and 4.

This is what Fender write about the model on their website:

The 1970 Strat marks the end of an era. It was the last year of the four-bolt neck joint, original factory synchronized tremolo with stamped saddles, and heel-adjust truss rod. Body contours changed dramatically in 1971, clad in much thicker polyurethane finishes. Indeed, 1970 was the last year the Strat held true to its purest original design elements.

To honor this benchmark model, we’re introducing a faithful recreation with several

custom modifications that players and aficionados will appreciate. The two-piece select alder body of the 1970 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic has a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish. Its two-piece rift-sawn maple neck has a 1969 “U” profile, walnut “skunk stripe” and a lacquer-face large ’70s-style headstock with a darker aged appearance. The rosewood fingerboard has a comfortable modern 9.5” radius and 21 narrow tall frets. A three-ply nitro pickguard holds three hand-wound ’69 Strat pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) and a Vintage Modified #2 control assembly with Greasebucket tone circuit, which keeps mids and highs without adding bass when rolling back the tone control. Other features include vintage style “F” tuning machines, five-way switch and vintage-style Custom Shop synchronized tremolo. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

Note: for, now, we are using the photos that Fender use on their website. We will update this listing using our own photos a.s.a.p.
