This is a genuine Fender USA Post Modern Relic body built by Fender Custom Shop in 2015.
It was originally from a genuine Fender Custom Shop Strat purchased new from Downtown Music in Sydney in 2016. It was serial #0544. The neck and hardware have since departed for use on another Strat partscaster, now long gone to this owner.
It features the slim lines and curvature of the classic 50s style Strats of the pre-CBS era. It is finished in a thin sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer which has been given a subtle and quite beautiful light relic finish by Fender CS.
It is unchanged in any way from its original manifestation.
It is a relatively light solid ash body weighing in at 4.8 lbs
The imprint in the neck pickup cavity reads “POST MOD”
The imprint in the middle pickup cavity reads “RELIC”
It features a very comfortable curved neck heel, the same as those found on American Deluxe Strats, Eric Johnson Strats and some Jeff Beck signature models.
This is a superb kickoff point for that great custom Strat you may have dreamt of for a while.
Comes with a photocopy of the Certificate of Authenticity for the original 2015 guitar – not pictured yet, but included.
