MORE ABOUT LIMITED EDITION FAT 50S STRAT® RELIC®
This Relic lacquer-finish beauty showcases the very best of the what the 1950s had to offer, with the compelling addition of several special features and three beautiful custom colors. The two-piece select alder body features deep body contours for perfect comfort, and “dirty” finish checking—a finely detailed feature that normally takes years to achieve naturally but is conjured by our magicians in the Custom Shop relic department in far less time.
The one-piece rift-sawn maple neck sports a ’54 soft “V” profile, 9.5”-radius fingerboard and 21 jumbo (6100) frets. Hand-wound Fat ’50s pickups (with reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) produce fatter ’50s-style tone, with five-way switching and Fat ’50s wiring that produces stronger tone and more transparent bloom.
Other features include an 11-hole parchment pickguard, Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and single wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and master-built instruments, they are just what the name says they are: highly anticipated limited-edition models that go very quickly.
There and back—and still here today.
The authentic worn-in wear of a guitar that has experienced many years of regular use in clubs and bars. Marks that tell a story, finish checking all over the body, and scars, dings and dents from bridge to headstock.
