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.

This 1960 Strat features a select, lightweight two piece Alder body that proudly wears an expertly aged Relic Nitro Cellulose finish.
