This Limited Edition Fender Custom Shop 58 Relic Strat was made for the occasion of the 2018 NAMM show. It is a beautiful mostly vintage-spec guitar, with an alder body, AA flame maple neck and handwound Fat 50s pickups. More modern are the 9.5” neck radius and the 5-way pickup selector.
The guitar has a super faded and aged 2 color sunburst finish, and a heavy relic back of its neck: there is no paint on most of the back of the neck, which makes it feel really comfortable. It has a Limited Edition neckplate, headstock decal and certificate.
The instrument comes with a deluxe Fender case, a bridge cover, a guitar strap and a leather folder containing the certificate and the original Custom Shop floor traveler that was used during the building of the guitar.
