Limited Edition Roasted '61 Strat® Super Heavy Relic®
Limited Edition - Limited Edition Roasted '61 Strat® Super Heavy Relic®, Flat-Lam Rosewood Fingerboard, Aged Natural
Model Number: 9235001498
The Limited Edition Roasted ’61 Strat Super Heavy Relic embodies everything that made 1961 such a special year, with some bad-to-the-bone modifications found only in the Fender Custom Shop that will entice the most discerning player. A super-heavy relic lacquer finish imparts the look and feel of a guitar that has relentlessly lit up stage after stage for many years. Its two-piece select alder body (ash on aged natural finish model) is roasted to create a rich dark color and to simulate a guitar that has aged with a decrease in wood moisture content and an increase in sustain.
The tinted and roasted quartersawn maple neck has a chunky custom large “C” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius flat-lam rosewood fingerboard with 21 jumbo (6100) frets. Hot hand-wound Texas Special pickups provide searing tone, with five-way switching and a Strat “1/2 blender” wiring, which lets players blend the neck and bridge pickup in switch positions 1 and 2.
Other features include a three-ply mint green pickguard, Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree with metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
