Fender Custom Shop 1957 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic - British Racing Green
Item ID: 9231007903
This is a Fender Custom Shop 1957 Journeyman Relic Stratocaster. It is a custom, one-off instrument built upon a 1956 Strat base model. Features include a two-piece ash body, 10/56 V profile quartersawn maple neck, 6105 frets, and handwired Ancho Poblano pickups. It is finished in British Racing Green, which is unassuming at first glance, yet stunning when you realize it's actually not black.
The neck is unusually enormous for a Stratocaster, but the extra amount of maple - quartersawn, at that - lends towards increased midrange punch and pop. The classic positions 2 and 4 are not thin in any sense, thanks to the extra power from the Poblano pickups, which are a newer overwound design straight from the Custom Shop. A four bolt neck joint, 21 frets, and a tweed G&G style Journeyman case round off this vintage package.
