Product description

A beautiful heavy relic 55 Stratocaster with an ash body, quartersawn roasted maple neck and handwound 55 Strat pickups.

This guitar has some traditional features, as well as some modern improvements: the neck has a nice traditional 57 soft V-Shape, combined with a more modern fretboard radius of 9.5” inches. This radius is commonly used on newer Fenders, making string bending easier.

The gold anodized aluminum pickguard and reliced desert sand finish provide a vintage vibe, whereas the roasting process that the maple neck was treated with is a newer invention. Roasting the wood increases its resonance and lowers the weight, ending up with properties not unlike true vintage wood.

This guitar was spec’ed and custom ordered by our store’s staff, to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
