Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Journeyman Relic '55 Stratocaster Cimarron Red Finish ID-11302
Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Journeyman Relic 55' Stratocaster
A sophisticated-looking instrument with a uniquely rich appearance, the NAMM 2017 Limited Edition Journeyman Relic ’55 Stratocaster.
While it may look and sound like an original-era Stratocaster that’s been owned for decades, the Custom Shop 1955 Journeyman Relic Stratocaster also incorporates a few modern touches. The lightweight select ash body wears a way-cool color-over-color Cimarron Red paint scheme, finished with nitrocellulose lacquer to let the wood breathe with pure Fender tone.
A trio of hand-wound ’55 Strat pickups with alnico 3 magnets, ’54 covers, a five-way switch and modified wiring—including a Tone-Saver treble-bleed circuit—provide authentic tone with robust lows and crystal-clear highs that stay consistent, no matter where the instrument’s volume is set.
Other sterling features include a 5/4 quartersawn maple neck with a vintage-accurate ’54 “U”-shaped profile, comfortably modern 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard, 21 6105 frets, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and round string tree.
Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
