Coming from Fender Custom Shop’s ‘Time Machine’ series, this Fender Custom Shop 1960 Relic Stratocaster, here in Aged Olympic White finish, has the familiar, comfortable feel of a guitar that has seen its fair share of use whilst delivering the classic vintage Fender tones of a 50 year old instrument. Coupled with a handful of contemporary features, you have a combination that’s hard to beat.
This 1960 Strat features a select, lightweight two piece Alder body that proudly wears an expertly aged Relic Nitro Cellulose finish. This is coupled to a quartersawn maple neck featuring a period-correct Oval ‘C’ profile. The AAA Rosewood fretboard features a modern 9.5” radius and is equipped with 21 Jumbo frets for easy string bending and vibrato.

These are wired through a 5 way selector switch, master volume and two tone controls featuring a Tone- Saver Treble Bleed circuit to allow crisp trebles at all volume levels.
The carefully aged hardware consists of an American Vintage Synchronized tremolo bridge, Vintage style, Fender logo tuners and a wing string tree.
