The launch pad for the sound of the '60s.
The Fender Custom Shop 1960 Relic Stratocaster with Matching Headstock features include an alder body with nitro finish, maple neck with matching headstock, rosewood fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 6105 frets, 1960 Stratocaster pickups with 5-way switching, three-ply mint green pickguard, and vintage hardware. This detailed Custom Shop reproduction of a 1960 Strat was built utilizing original tooling and production techniques of the era. And its Relic finish treatment gives it the look of a well-traveled and heavily played axe, although it is absolutely new in setup and playability. Includes deluxe hardshell case.
At the dawn of the 1960s, with manned space flight just beginning, the Stratocaster stood poised for a wild new decade full of exciting and innovative new music. Music history beckoned as never before—sound would be wrung from the Stratocaster in the '60s that its designers and players of the previous decade couldn't possibly have dreamed up.
