2010 Fender Stratocaster Relic 58 Reissue Limited Edition Candy Apple Red
The Fender Custom shop is know for producing highly accurate reproduction's of some of the most famous instruments ever produced. From their website description: "Since 1987, the Fender Custom Shop has been a "dream factory," producing guitars that are to playing what Ferraris are to driving. The skilled craftsmen in Fender's Corona, Calif., Custom Shop are known worldwide for their artistry in making guitars that range from the fine to the fantastic." The 1958 Fender Stratocaster Relic made by the Fender Custom Shop recreates one of the Stratocaster's golden years. In 1958, the Strat had been all but perfected, and this was the year that it went from interesting guitar to world-wide sensation. Many popular artists picked up the Strat in ’58, and it really took off. This recreation by Fender faithfully duplicates everything that made the 1958 Strat a huge success.
Celebrating the 1950s look, but with modern features, this guitar is built for the working musician. It features hand-wound Abigail Ybarra pickups with a reverse-wound/reverse-pole middle pickup so that in the second and fourth switch positions the pickups cancel any hum. The guitar also has a flatter radius and taller 6105 frets for easier bending. The wiring is what Fender calls “modern Strat” wiring, which lets the tone control for the middle pickup also work as a high-end roll-off on the bridge pickup. This is a limited edition instrument, there are only 30 worldwide.
It features a premium lightweight Ash Body, one-piece Maple neck with a big "V" neck shape, Maple Fretboard with a 9.5" Fretboard Radius, a 25.5" Scale Length and 1-Ply Gold Anodized Pickguard. Finished in a tinted lacquer finish. The bridge is an American vintage synchronized tremolo, the tuners are Gotoh vintage style, and the hardware is all done in chrome and nickel. Additionally, the this 1958 Strat has a few unique features such as its relic finish and large 7mm black dot position inlays.
This instrument is in excellent condition. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case, case candy and Certificate of Authenticity.
