New for 2024, the Fender Custom Shop introduces the 1957 Stratocaster® Heavy Relic®—an undeniable electric guitar icon. Over the years, the ’57 Strat® gained notoriety for its unmistakable appointments and this model is loaded with the features that truly evoke the spirit of its celebrated predecessor.

The two-piece select alder body (ash on White Blonde and Two-Color Sunburst), one-piece rift sawn maple neck with ’57-style Soft “V” back-shape and single-ply parchment pickguard come together to create the perfect blend of late-‘50s Strat® specs. Loaded with a trio of Custom Shop hand-wound Tomatillo Stratocaster® pickups (RWRP middle pickup) and equipped with Vintage Modified #2 wiring and Greasebucket™ tone circuit, this guitar delivers all the spank and quack a player would want from a Strat®, but with a hint of extra warm, full-bodied tone.

All wrapped in Heavy Relic® lacquer finish, the 1957 Stratocaster® evokes decades of intense playing and touring—this guitar is a battle-tested workhorse.

Other premium features include 9.5" radius, 21 narrow tall (6105) frets, 5-way switch, Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, wing string tree, deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
