Flexible Custom Shop Strat

With the Fender Limited Edition '57 Stratocaster Relic MN Aged Candy Apple Red the Fender Custom Shop sends a particularly flexible Strat in the End Fifties Style into the race. While the "Contour Body" made of alder wood and the bolt-on "'57 Soft V" maple neck promise comfortable playing characteristics with an authentic vintage feel, hand-wound single coil pickup provide a multi-faceted sound that is ideally suited for traditional clean and drive sounds. Traditional Hardware in the form of a Vintage Synchronized Tremolo and Stimmstablier Vintage tuners completes the Limited Edition '57 Stratocaster Relic MN Aged Candy Apple Red by Fender.

Classically built Strat with "Soft V" neck.

The construction of the Limited Edition '57 Stratocaster Relic relies on excellent tonewoods and historically authenticated construction. Underneath the artificially aged nitrocellulose finish, which conveys the look and feel of a frequently played vintage guitar, there is accordingly a two-piece "Contour Body" made of alder, which not only lies against the body with optimal balance, but is also glued with historically correct offset joints. In addition, the neck made of high-quality Rift Sawn Maple with the "'57 Soft V" profile offers surprisingly comfortable playing characteristics, so that any playing technique can be implemented with ease on the 21-fret fingerboard.

Versatile sound spectrum

With a Custom Shop '57 Strat single coil in the neck position, a Custom Shop Fat '50s RWRP single coil in the middle and a powerful Custom Shop Texas Special single coil at the bridge, the Limited Edition '57 Stratocaster Relic covers the entire spectrum of classic Strat sounds between glassy cleans with lively dynamics and crisp Overdrive with well-dosed bite. The pickups are controlled via a 5-way switch and the "Fat '50s Wiring", which promises particularly smooth treble roll-offs with the two tone controls.

Authentic hardware equipment

Last but not least, the Fender Custom Shop completes the Limited Edition '57 Stratocaster Relic MN Aged Candy Apple Red with high-quality Hardware in authentic vintage style. Naturally, a Custom Shop Synchronized Tremolo serves as the bridge, which not only encourages shimmering pitch modulations with smooth handling, but also guarantees precise intonation and string action adjustment with six string riders made of bent sheet steel. Six Fender Vintage-Style tuners also ensure accurate tuning with high stability.
