Fender’s shrine to the heritage and legacy of those pioneers who made us what we are today. The Fender Custom Shop reached new heights of craftsmanship with its acclaimed Time Machine series—artfully “relic-ed” guitars and basses that revolutionised the entire concept of “reissue” instruments. The Custom Shop has since ventured even higher by crafting meticulous replicas “using the same techniques and tooling used to create the originals” all those years ago.
By 1967 the iconic Strat® had developed into something rather different than its earlier incarnations, gaining a rosewood fingerboard, along with moving from an 8-screw to an 11-screw pickguard. A dead-ringer for an authentic ’67 Strat that’s seen many sessions and stages, the 1967 Stratocaster Rosewood Relic combines authentic sound and feel with a few tweaks for modern players. The two-piece body is crafted from alder that was selected for its light weight and attractive grain, and wears a Relic lacquer finish that lets it breathe with pure resonance while wearing in a distinctively personal way. The tinted riftsawn maple neck sports a comfortable “ ‘60-style Oval C” profile and hosts a round-lam rosewood fingerboard with Mother-of-Pearl dot inlays, and as a special touch for modern players, modern 9.5” radius and 21 6105 frets. The hand-wound ’64 Strat® single-coil pickups and Vintage Modified #2 wiring offer authentic tone that’s easy to refine while the reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup reduces hum when used in combination with the other two.
Other features include 5-way switch, 3-ply Parchment pickguard, American Vintage Strat synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines and wing string tree with nylon spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
