    Product Description

    We teamed up with the Fender Custom Shop to design a series of artist-inspired Stratocasters to our own specifications. These are our interpretations of some of our favourite Fender artists’ guitars – this particular number is based on the early ‘60s Strat, painstakingly relic’d by Fender CS luthiers.

    The '61 Model

    Our ’61 Strat has a wonderfully smooth feel to it, with a couple of minor differences between a '61 and previous runs. We also tweaked a few of the specs with premium tone and playability in mind.

    By 1961, Fender were beginning to transition into using alder to build most of their guitars. We've stuck with tradition here, pairing an alder body with a maple neck and topped with a 9mm slab rosewood fingerboard. The neck is carved to the popular Mid ‘60s-style Oval "C" shape.

    Electronics

    The Custom Shop Strat was designed to produce the perfect modern blues rock tone that sounds just as good with gritty overdrive as it does with a clean channel. We opted for a set of handwound ‘65s pickups, similar to the Fat ‘50s before it but wound for a bit of extra heat.

    Heavy Relic

    As the name suggests, Heavy Relic is the Fender Custom Shop’s most extreme form of guitar ageing. Designed to offer the feel of a genuine classic instrument, these instruments are overflowing with character. Beautifully-aged finishes, smooth worn-in necks, relic hardware – you’ll feel like you’re wielding a true piece of guitar history.
