Fender Custom Shop ’55 1955 Reissue Stratocaster Journeyman Relic 2019 Aged White Blonde. Excellent Condition 9/10.

A really lovely and well featured historically accurate guitar this one. This 55 Strat combines creamy tones, a beautifully slim neck and a super resonant ash body weighing in at 7.3lbs. Thats a lot of boxes ticked!

The Journeyman Relic ’55 Strat boasts gorgeous creamy tones thanks to its hand wound historically accurate low gain ’55 alnico 3 pickups. Plugged in the guitar really shines as you’d expect. A really nice creamy and smooth tone to it, definitely not as high output as some of the later 60’s strats you hear. The volume and tone controls have a very smooth taper and really allow you to dial in multiple tonal options. The quartersawn maple neck combined with the ash body and thin lacquer finish gives great sustain and resonance.

Other features include a 5 way switch, cloth wiring and historically accurate plastics and hardwear. The quartersawn plain grain maple neck is really nice to play with one of the slimmer Fender neck profiles – An Esquire 59 ‘C’”-shaped profile with a 7.5” radius fingerboard. The guitar also features 21 6105 jumbo frets, single ply 8-hole pickguard and American Vintage six-point synchronised tremolo. The tweed deluxe hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity are included.

This particular guitar has been played but extremely well looked after and not seen much use. The guitar has been aged to perfection by Fenders best as you would expect.
