This is a Custom Shop, Heavy Relic, 1956 Reissue Stratocaster. We had the Fender Custom Shop build this guitar. We asked them to build us a ’56 RI Stratocaster with the following features. This guitar has a perfectly quarter sawn Maple Neck and the dark vintage tint. 7.25” to 9.5 Compound Radius Fretboard. The guitar is wired with a “vintage 50’s” wiring and uses a 3 way selector switch. Tone knob #1 affects the Neck and Middle Pickups and Tone Knob #2 affects the Bridge Pickup. Otherwise this guitar was built using the standard 1956 Reissue Stratocaster Specifications.

The 2016 Limited Edition 1956 Relic Stratocaster takes you straight back to the instrument’s original era, with a deep-contoured lightweight ash body and a Relic lacquer finish that evokes years of hard-fought wear and tear. The sparkling trio of hand wound ’56 single-coil Stratocaster pickups features a hum-cancelling reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup along with a five-way switch, Vintage Modified wiring and Tone-Saver treble bleed circuit for modern tonal versatility.

Other premium features include a one-piece tinted quartersawn maple neck with a 10/’56 “V”-shaped profile, 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 6105 frets and bone nut, single-ply eggshell pickguard, vintage hardware and more. Includes Custom Shop Limited neck plate, case and certificate of authenticity. Available in Wide Fade Two-Color Sunburst, Faded Foam Green, Faded ’55 Desert Tan, Faded Shell Pink and Faded Sonic Blue.
