Fender Custom Shop 1961 Stratocaster Heavy Relic Graffiti Yellow

SKU:  ae00-24159
Manufacturer Part #:  9231009734
From Fender's Revered Custom Shop in Corona, California, weighing in at 7.65 pounds (7 pounds, 10.5 ounces), comes this Heavily Relic'd 1961 Stratocaster to Obliterate the Competition.

The ’61 Strat Heavy Relic takes you back to a special time during the evolution of the venerable model when Leo Fender was constantly modifying, progressing, innovating and perfecting. 1961 was the final year of the round-lam or “slab” rosewood fingerboard, ushering in a new era of ’60s Strats along with many other changes and upgrades. On this model, a two-piece select alder body wears a well-worn Heavy Relic lacquer finish, and the quartersawn maple neck has a ’60s-style “oval C” profile, 9.5”-radius flat-lam rosewood fingerboard, and 21 Narrow Tall (6105) frets for classic feel.

Custom Shop hand-wound 60's Relic Strat pickups provide those classic 1960's tones full of Mojo, all on a three-ply mint green relic'd pickguard. Other features include a Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree with tall metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity. Specs
