The Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic in Aged Aztec Gold reflects a harmonious fusion of vintage charm and modern refinements. This iteration celebrates the timeless appeal of the Stratocaster, reimagined with present-day enhancements that cater to the demands of today's players.
The guitar's body, crafted from 2-piece select alder, ensures a balanced resonance that has been a cornerstone of the Stratocaster sound. The design stays true to the iconic Stratocaster silhouette, a shape that has captivated players since its introduction in 1954.
The neck, a quartersawn maple piece, sports a fat 1959 “D” profile, offering substantial yet comfortable grip for a variety of playing styles. The fingerboard, a round-laminated quartersawn maple, features a compound radius of 9.5" to 12", providing optimal comfort and ease in both chordal and solo playing. The 6105 narrow tall frets enhance playability across the 25.5" scale length. Black micarta dot inlays provide a sleek and subtle contrast to the maple fingerboard.
This Postmodern Strat comes equipped with a trio of Custom Shop Hand-Wound Dual-Mag II Strat pickups. Coupled with a 5-position blade switch and a master volume with tone-saver bleed, the electronics offer a broad palette of tonal colors. The unique Neck/Bridge Pickup Blend control opens up additional sonic possibilities.
The Aged Aztec Gold finish, applied with nitrocellulose lacquer, is beautifully complemented by the Journeyman Relic treatment, depicting an instrument that has been cherished yet worn over the years.
The Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic represents an impressive blend of the old and new, showcasing Fender's rich legacy whilst embracing the modern demands of today's players.
