Fender Stratocaster 1957 Custom Shop
All Rosewood Neck / Wide Chocolate Sunburst
A sophisticated-looking instrument with a uniquely rich appearance, the Limited Edition Journeyman Relic ’57 Stratocaster—Wide-Fade Chocolate 2-Colour Sunburst is a work of functional art. Marking the Fender Custom Shop’s 30th anniversary in style, this guitar is for players who want to add a touch of velvety warmth and spotlight-ready style to the classic feel and sound of a Stratocaster.
This Stratocaster marries a luxurious rosewood neck and modern 9.5”-radius AAA round-lam rosewood fingerboard to the features of a ’57 Strat®. Three hand-wound Custom Shop ’57 Strat single-coil pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-phase middle pickup) work in conjunction with Vintage Modified #2 wiring (including the Tone-Saver treble-bleed circuit) to sing with the sweet sound that made the Strat a legend around the world.
Other features include a lightweight two-piece select ash body, 21 6105 frets, six-saddle American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, four-bolt neckplate and bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
