This Fender Custom Shop'62 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic pairs a beautifully figured Ash body with a nitrocellulose lacquer 2 Tone Sunburst finish that has sunk in to the grain of the wood like a true vintage guitar, with a Journeyman relic finish from the Fender Custom Shop to give it gently aged vintage look and feel that it would usually take decades of playing to achieve.
The neck is a '60s style oval C profile which gives an immediately comfortable and familiar feel, with a rosewood fingerboard with a 10" radius and medium jumbo frets for easier bends. The body is loaded with 3 Fender Custom Shop hand wound Fat 60's pickups, with a typical '60s voicing with a slightly overwound, hotter output, wired Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity allowing for hum-cancelling in positions two and four of the five way selector switch. As always, this Custom Shop Strat is finished to the highest standards, with a period correct mint green pickguard, aged plastic parts and its original brown tolex hard case.
