Fender Custom Shop - 2020 60 Strat Heavy Relic - Fender Custom Shop - 2020 60 Strat Heavy Relic - Faded/Aged Seafoam Green


Early 1960 saw a major transition of the Strat® from its original 1950s version. New features that year included a rosewood “slab” fingerboard, three-ply “mint green” nitrocellulose pickguard, thinner oval “C” neck profile, and a tall metal spacer on the string guide. Further, it was the last year of the original “spaghetti” headstock decal (“Fender® Stratocaster® with Synchronized Tremolo”) before the addition of patent numbers.

For this recreation, we’ve added several compelling player-centric features for greater tonal options and a heightened playing experience. The Heavy Relic lacquer finish on the two-piece alder body imparts the look and feel of guitar that’s been played for years. The tinted quartersawn maple neck has a 1960-style oval “C” back shape, topped by a rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets and a modern 9.5” radius for comfortable feel when bending anywhere along the neck. Three hand-wound Texas Special™ pickups are connected to Strat “1/2 Blender” wiring, which creates seven possible tonal options through neck-pickup blending in switch positions 1 and 2. Other features include Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, wing string tree with tall metal spacer, and a bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
