Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and master built instruments, they are just what the name says they are: highly anticipated limited-edition models that go very quickly.

The 2016 1955 Relic Stratocaster takes you straight back to the instrument's original era, with a lightweight ash body in a faded candy tangerine lacquer Relic finish that evokes years of hard-fought wear and tear. The sparkling trio of hand-wound '55 single-coil Stratocaster pickups is mounted on a single-ply eight-hole eggshell white pickguard, with five-way switching for modern tonal versatility.

Other premium features include a quartersawn maple neck with worn Relic treatment on the back, 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets, rock-solid American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, chrome Vintage tuning machines with eggshell white knobs, and a Custom Shop Limited Edition neck plate. Includes case.
