Widely considered a quintessential year for '50s-era Stratocasters, the ’57 Strat refined then-new features like an alder body and powerful pickups built to handle emerging styles of intense playing. From aesthetics to electronics and hardware, this Limited-edition Fender Custom Shop ’57 Relic captures it all with spot-on period-correct hardware, a trio of hand-wound Custom Shop pickups, and a 1-piece maple neck with a “Soft V” profile. A Relic finish ties all of the vintage vibes together with a pre-loved feel. And the tone? Plug this gorgeous instrument into your favorite amp, and you'll be hard-pressed to put it down.
