An accurate reproduction with an alder body, rosewood fingerboard and '60s Strat pickups.
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.
The Fender Custom Shop 1960 Stratocaster Relic Electric Guitar features an alder body with lacquer finish, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, 9.5" radius, 6105 frets, 1960 Stratocaster pickups with 5-way switching, custom pickguard and relic 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.
