Fender Custom Shop 2018 Postmodern Strat Maple Journeyman Relic Aged Daphne Blue

Product ID: P-12232

£3,292.00

Model Overview:

Combining modern features and classic Fender designs, the Fender Custom Shop 2018 Postmodern Strat is the perfect mixture of vintage looks and modern playability and tone. Finished in an Aged Daphne Blue Journeyman Relic, which provides an aged aesthetic to the instrument whilst not heavily scarring it or dinging it, this Stratocaster is constructed from an Ash body and quartersawn Maple neck with contoured heel for easy upper fret access.

The neck is a 60's Oval C profile with a laminated AA Birdseye Maple Fingerboard which provides a more contemporary feel than most 60's style necks; it boasts a 9.5"-12" radius, this means that chords at the lower end of the neck feel comfortable and familliar whilst at the upper end the guitar is easily playable and equally as comfortable, particularly when taken into consideration the fact that the guitar is fitted with 6015 fret wire. 

The body is loaded with Hand wound Fender Custom Shop El Diablo pickups and Vintage Modified #2 wiring, for a hotter output that has plenty of definition. Other Features include Closet Classic hardware, an American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, 3 ply Eggshell pick guard and deluxe hardshell case complete with Custom Shop Certificate.
