We can measure the exact weight. Please send a PM whith your preffered weight first.
When you are not sure on the neck dimensions; feel free to try the guitar out. Do you not like the neck? You can ship it back we can help on a label. Also in this case, let us know the requirements on dimensions first when this is really important.
I’m dedicated when we are talking about photography. With love for guitars and photography it got a lot of attention and the guitars are compared & calibrated to the original guitar. With respect for other sellers, we don’t add extra contrast to make things more beautiful.
We don’t do pictures with lightning, with some iphone under a bad yellow fluorescent tube to show the ‘real’ guitar. Again, the real guitar is in the pictures.
We do video calls on appointment to show the guitar when needed (facetime / whatsapp)
Many thanks for understanding <3 !
Rock ‘n’ roll was steaming ahead in 1957, and the electric guitar was taking on a prominent role in stripped-down bands, replacing the saxophone as the main lead instrument. The Fender Stratocaster was taking center stage in the hands of legendary musicians and reshaping the sound of modern music. The Fender Custom Shop 1957 Stratocaster Relic brings you back to that time in all its greatness with a few player-centric modifications under the hood.
A two-piece hand-selected alder body (ash on aged white blonde) wears a Relic lacquer finish and the one-piece tinted quartersawn maple neck hosts a “1957 V” profile, 9.5” fingerboard radius and 21 narrow tall frets. Hand-wound ’57 pickups with reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup are wired up to a five-way switch and Fat ’50s wiring on a single-ply parchment pickguard for vintage-accurate tone and look. Other features include Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
