The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.This Fender Custom Shop LTD '58 Stratocaster Heavy Relic is a spirited Custom Shop creation based on the 1958 Stratocaster and tweaked for modern players. It features a 2-piece select Alder body and a flame Maple AA quartersawn neck with a '59 Esquire C shaped profile.
The lacquer finish gives it the look and comfortable playing feel of a well-loved instrument that’s been in service for decades. The Red Sparkle finish over 2 color Sunburst with Heavy Relic treatment gives you a painstakingly recreated and meticulously hand-aged version of a legendary Strat. This guitar has been finished to resemble an instrument that has enjoyed a long life of heavy use. The end result is an instrument that looks like it's been around for a while and plays like a well broken-in instrument, although it is absolutely new in setup and playability.Equipped with a trio of hand-wound Strat Fat 50's single-coil pickups - including a RWRP middle pickup to reduce hum - and Vintage Modified #2 wiring, this Strat sings with spicy, balanced tone that can make your music come alive in new ways. The 9.5” radius fretboard offers 21 narrow tall frets for sublime playing feel.
Additional appointments include a American Vintage eggshell relic pickguard, 5-way pickup switch, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and American Vintage 56-58 relic string tree.
This guitar is a piece of art that looks like it's got years of stories to tell and is packed with features and hand finished details that can't be truly appreciated until you're holding it in your hands. It will come to you in deluxe tweed hardshell case with a Custom Shop strap, Certificate of Authenticity and Custom Shop floor traveler.
