This 1960 Chocolate 3-Tone Sunburst Stratocaster pairs a two piece Alder Body with a Quarter Sawn Maple Neck and is Standard Reliced by Fender; the "Relic" finish is designed to show years of playing with different dings and marks to show different parts of a story, to give your guitar a history from the moment you take it out the case for the first time.
The neck is a mid 60's oval C profile which gives an immediately comfortable and familiar feel and is finished with a AAA grade slab rosewood fingerboard and 6100 jumbo frets. The body is outfitted with 3X custom shop hand wound 60/63 Stratocaster Pickups with the middle pickup being Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity allowing for hum-cancelling in positions two and four of the five way selector switch, the electronics are capped off with a Tone-Saver treble bleed circuit which means that no matter where the volume is set, there is no tone drop off.
