From Fender –
“A historic instrument with a custom twist. We’ve taken one of Fender’s greatest instruments and added colour and features to make the 2013 version something that could have been built in 1956 but wasn’t. We started with a lightweight ash body, picked one of our favourite 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. Finished with gold hardware and an anodized gold pickguard, the 1956 Relic Strat® is a beauty to hear, see and play.”
