Fender Custom Shop 1956 Relic Stratocaster 56 HLE Gold Special Run Limited 1500602898

A historic instrument with a custom twist. We’ve taken one of Fender’s most iconic instruments and added color and features to make the 2013 version. This is a special run and only a small handful of this guitar was made in the HLE Gold. It look and plays like something that could have been built in 1956. We started with a lightweight ash body, picked one of our favorite and most requested neck shapes (the 10/'56) and rounded the instrument off with a set of Fat '50s pickups. Built with the player in mind, it also has the flatter 9.5” fingerboard radius, taller 6105 frets and one of our most requested wiring and tone-control circuits, which lets the player control the middle and bridge pickups with one tone knob. Gold hardware and an anodized gold pickguard make this instrument a stunningly crafted lean, mean tone machine with all of the feel and tone of the 1956 Relic® Stratocaster®
