Designed with a boatload of vintage charm, the Fender Custom Shop 1959 Journeyman Relic Stratocaster embodies the soul of over 50 years of history in both look and sound. Built with a two-piece select alder body, this The '59 Journeyman Relic comes equipped with three hand-wound Custom Shop Tomatillo single-coil pickups that carry the most classic of Stratocaster tones into the modern era, with a reverse-wound, reverse polarity middle pickup for even more tonal variation. Plus, the guitar's rift-sawn maple neck features a '59 Esquire Style C shape, Narrow Tall / 6105 frets, and the tonal integrity of a bone nut. And thanks to Closet Classic hardware and a Faded 3 Tone Sunburst finish, this '59 reissue's aesthetic package gives it the look of an original late-fifties Strat, with all the chips, dings, and minor surface scratches you would expect on a vintage instrument. Finished with a nitro lacquer finish, this guitar will prove itself to be a staple in any player's arsenal with authentic in-hand feel and looks to prove it.
