Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 55 Stratocaster Relic Aged Olympic White
Item ID: 9235000753
This guitar right here is a Vintage Custom 1955 Strat Relic in Aged Olympic White made for the 2018 Fender Limited Summer Event. It features a lightweight Alder Body, Rift-Sawn Maple Neck, and Hand-Wound 1955 Strat Low-G Alnico 3 Pickups. Its thick 1954 "U" Neck-shape is super comfortable and plays like dream thanks to the 7.25"-9.50" Compound Radius.
Like an old friend that's been with you through thick and thin, this Stratocaster has been beautifully relic'd. The fingerboard looks and feels worn in, as does the neck. The back of the neck has a slight sanded down feel to it, that makes navigating up and down the fret board fast and effortless. The body is heavily checked and features those dings and dents you'd expect from years on the road.To top it all it is dressed up with an American Vintage .06 Eggshell pickguard, an eggshell switch tip and knobs, and aged hardware.
This is guitar is a fine example of pure craftsmanship and artistry. Weighing in at 7 lbs. 8.5 oz., it won't break your back either so you can play this one as it wants you to.
