Fender Custom Shop 1958 Strat Journeyman Relic

The Fender Custom Shop '58 is a must have for any Fender Stratocaster enthusiast! From the heavy relic finish, to the quartersawn maple neck, this guitar is one for the ages. Yet, what may be the most outstanding component on this guitar are the Hand-Wound Fat 50's Stratocaster pickups designed specifically for this custom shop Fender Stratocaster. Those pickups produce the incredible vintage legendary Fender tone heard in guitars from those pre-CBS days when Leo Fender was still the man in charge at Fender.

A classic 1959 Large ""C"" shaped neck is just another one of those attention-to-details the Fender Custom Shop provides that puts these Stratocasters into a league of their own. What is truly unique is the feel of this neck. One might think it would be wide and slow, but it is quite the contrary. Yes, the neck is thick and heavy, but so smooth, your fretting hand just seems to glide over the back, allowing your fingers incredible access and flow over the fingerboard.

Although this is a 1959 Stratocaster recreation, it has modern wiring and the reliability that comes with 50+ years of experience in crafting quality electric guitars. Therefore you know that when you pick this guitar up, it will be ready to rock from the first beat to the last!

The Fender Custom Shop 1958 Strat Journeyman Relic is a marvelous recreation of early model Fenders. If you are interested in purchasing this Stratocaster, please feel free to contact us! We will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this guitar.
