2014 Fender MVP Series 1960 Stratocaster Relic
This original 2014 Fender 1960 Stratocaster Relic in original Red Sparkle plays as wonderfully as she looks. It's pre owned but it's barely been played and has been very well cared for. Comes with original case, certificate, and a host of case candy including strap and bridge cover.
This Relic 60 Strat is part of the Master Vintage Player Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, built exclusively in the Fender Custom Shop!!!
This particular guitar is built to modified early 60s Strat specs and has a very special hand-distressed, Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! Another nifty feature is a switch hidden discretely in the center of the volume knob, which is wired to give you the neck / bridge pickup combination. This puts all those Jimmy Page / Ritchie Blackmore type tones- Even a bit of Tele flavor right at your fingertips. Of course all the classic Stratocaster tones you know and love are still there too. Right where they should be.
The Fender Custom Shop Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, but they play like a dream. Easier chording, faster leads and no fretting out when you go for the big bends thanks to the 1&11/16" nut width, flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius and 6105 fret wire. Adjustments are a breeze too! The Truss Rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck for a tweak. These guitars also have and ultra-comfy, Oval C neck profile custom carved to our specs from Quartersawn Maple with a Rosewood fingerboard.
