Steeped in Fender's legacy, the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition '69 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic in Faded Aged Vintage White breathes new life into an iconic design. Crafted with a careful blend of time-honored craftsmanship and innovative enhancements, this electric guitar flawlessly captures the essence of the late '60s Stratocasters while incorporating modern elements for today's discerning player.
The 2-piece alder body, sorted for lightweight comfort, is the backbone of this Stratocaster, delivering a balanced, resonant tone that's as dynamic as it is iconic. Its Journeyman Relic Faded Aged Vintage White nitrocellulose finish adds an air of vintage authenticity, resembling an instrument that's been lovingly played over the decades.
This Strat proudly sports a rift-sawn maple neck exhibiting a beautiful light tint. Crucial to the instrument's playability, the neck is shaped into the substantial 1969 "U" profile, with measurements ranging from .850" at the 1st fret to .910" at the 12th fret, providing a satisfyingly robust grip for the player. Completing the neck is a congruous rift-sawn maple fingerboard with a user-friendly 9.5" radius, decked out with narrow black micarta inlays and 21 fan-favorite 6105 frets.
Further enriching the tonal repertoire are three hand-wound master design Bone Tone pickups, providing a wide spectrum of classic and contemporary Strat tones. These are managed via a 5-way pickup toggle, master volume, and dual-tone controls, offering players immense sound-shaping possibilities.
Weighing a comfortable 7lbs 15oz, this Limited Edition '69 Stratocaster promises easy playability for long sessions. Fender Custom Shop's commitment to their historic legacy is evident in every aspect of this guitar, a testament to decades of innovation and quality.
