Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Journeyman Relic Stratocaster. 2017, Aged Olympic White. Flame Neck! Mint 9.5/10.

Made for one year as part of a standard Custom Shop 2017 Limited Edition run this 59 Strat relic is a really cool guitar with fantastic ageing and real attention to detail, not to mention that heavily flamed neck with dark rosewood board. Just look at that lacquer checking detail and aged Olympic White paint!

This particular guitar has been part of a private collection and as such has been extremely well looked after and not seen much use. The guitar has been aged to perfection by Fenders best as you would expect. The neck is heavily flamed, probably the flamiest neck we’ve ever seen! The profile is a super comfy 1959 C shape, so a little bit chunkier at the top end than the usual slim 1960 C shape and plays beautifully.

The tone of this guitar is one to behold, really does have it all and sounds sublime. The pickups are Handwound Ancho Poblano’s with a reverse wound middle pickup, they are controlled with a 5 way switch with a master volume, tone saver bleed with greasebucket tone circuit so nice modern appointments we all want to really dial in your signature tone.
