Here at Andertons Music Co. we're fortunate enough to get our hands on various Fender Custom Shop guitars each year, to give you the opportunity to own something truly special and unique. This '61 Stratocaster Heavy Relic is as close to a "Golden Era" Strat as you can get — making it something that traditionalists will simply adore!
With its worn aesthetics, time-honoured hardware and vintage-style electronics; this premium instrument is a '60s Stratocaster through-and-through. Its Alder body, Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard and hand-wound '65 Strat pickups gloriously blend together to deliver that classic Strat "spank". A brown Fender Custom Shop case is included.
- Alder Body — Popular tonewood synonymous with bolt-on electric guitars. Serves as a superb sonic foundation for the pickups, with tight lows, bold mids and singing highs.
- Bolt-On Construction — Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
- '60-Style "Oval C" Neck Profile — Provides a played-in "time capsule" feel that's extremely comfortable. Finished with nitrocellulose lacquer that's been artificially worn.
- '65 Strat Single-Coils — Period-correct pickups yield an unbelievably authentic, classic '60s tone that's bright yet balanced. The coil on the middle pickup is RWRP, or 'Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity'. When engaged, the magnetic field in this middle pickup runs the opposite direction of the neck and bridge pickup, which eliminates the traditional 60-cycle single-coil hum.
- Sperzel Tuners — High-quality tuning machines allow for precise string pitching; featuring elegant white pearloid buttons.
