Fender Custom Shop, 2018 NAMM Limited '57 Strat, Heavy Relic 2 Tone Burst

Fender Custom Shop

One of the best examples of a two tone sunburst has just found its way into our wee shop and we couldn't be happier. Before we get into anything I just have to say; This guitar is LIGHT! This is a fantastically light and balanced instrument that the minute we picked her up we did not want to put it down. The Ash is beautiful but the relic is perfect, that is if you want a guitar that looks like it has been to Hell and back and has a plethora of wickedly great stories to tell! This guitar has the soul in her from day one!

The Pickups on this guitar really do harkin back to the 1950's. The tone is warm, clear, and not one bit harsh. Playing this instrument is like putting on the perfect pear of jeans, everything fits just right. Every chord rings out and there is a nice punch when played with a strong attack.

The neck has a great "V" carve to her with shoulders that are not too wide at all. This is one of the more comfortable "v's" we have played and she really is a hard guitar to put down. And if you happen to call in or email and talk with Baxter he will tell you just how much he LOVES this neck.
