Sorry, this item is not available.

A meticulously crafted Stratocaster that captures the spirit of '50s tone.

The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Fat 50s Stratocaster Relic captures the vintage magic of a well-loved '50s ax right out of the case. Every detail has been meticulously crafted to recreate the look, feel and sound of an original from that iconic era. From the relic lacquer finish with distressed body and neck to the hand-wound Fat '50s pickups, this guitar is pure tonal time travel for players who crave authentic vintage vibes.

Relic Finish Exudes Decades of Mojo

You'll swear this Strat has been a road-worn companion for years when you first lay eyes on its relic'd finish. The two-piece alder body sports an aged ivory nitro lacquer with skillfully distressed checking and wear patterns that usually take decades to materialize naturally. The rift-sawn maple neck also flaunts convincing signs of use, with a gently worn '54 soft V profile and lightly yellowed nitro finish. Every scratch and ding has been precisely created to recreate the broken-in look and feel of a vintage instrument.

Vintage-Spec Pickups Deliver Rich, Gritty Tone

While the relic'd aesthetic oozes old-school cool, the star of the show is the trio of hand-wound Fat '50s pickups. These single-coils authentically recreate the thick, gritty tone of beloved vintage Strats. The reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup provides hum-canceling performance in the 2nd and 4th positions. Fat '50s wiring further enhances their clarity and bloom. Switch between the five pickup settings to explore everything from glassy cleans to gnarly overdrive while maintaining that unmistakable vintage Strat character.

Vintage-Inspired Playability for Expressive Performances

Beyond its authentically vintage look and sound, this Custom Shop Strat translates the comfortable playing feel of a '50s original. The 9.5" fingerboard radius and jumbo 6100 frets allow for effortless string bending. The '54 soft V neck profile sits perfectly in the hand for rapid position shifts and extended playing sessions. Even the bone nut, vintage-style tuners and synchronized tremolo have been included to recreate the experience of playing a real 1950s Fender Stratocaster.

Premium Fender Appointments and Extras

Other premium features include an 11-hole parchment pickguard, single wing string tree and a deluxe hardshell case for safe keeping. The nickel/chrome hardware and vintage-style control knobs add the perfect finishing touches to this relic'd masterpiece. Whether you're a die-hard vintage tone connoisseur or simply appreciate extraordinary craftsmanship, the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Fat 50s Stratocaster Relic is a true player's instrument.
