Take your playing dreams to the next level with the Custom Shop’s Limited Edition Relic H/S Strat, a killer twist on classic Fender style.
Overwound and tailored for the neck position, a twisted Tele pickup cranks out hot, high-output Telecaster tone while the overwound EVH bridge pickup maintains articulation, allowing each string to ring out proud and true. The vintage-style six-screw Custom Shop RSD Stratocaster tremolo bridge travels smoothly, while maintaining classic aesthetics. The rift sawn maple neck sports a 1957 “Soft V” shaped profile that nestles comfortably in your hand and is a ideal for thumb-over playing.
The hardware and the Aged White Blonde body both wear the Custom Shop’s famous Relic treatment. Each component is carefully aged to give it the authentic worn-in appearance (and feel) of a guitar that’s experienced decades of loving us on stage. The neck has its own treatment, bearing a heavy relic tinted lacquer finish and rolled fingerboard edges, creating a dream feel for the fret hand. The Limited Edition Relic H/S Strat melds classic Fender aesthetics and feel with modern tone to create a dream guitar that will perform exceptionally in any player’s hands.
Includes an engraved Limited Edition Neck plate, Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe hardshell case.
