With its truly exceptional looks, tone, and feel, this 2018 Limited 1968 Pink Paisley Stratocaster Relic from the Fender Custom Shop is a fantastic vintage piece with stellar characteristics in all facets of its design. Finished in an absolutely striking Pink Paisley, and with a tasteful relic job throughout, there is no Fender that quite matches this Strat’s look. Join its eccentric-looking body with a Rift Sawn maple neck, and you have a guitar that not only looks great, but plays incredibly well too. Its 1963 Style “C” neck delivers comfortable in-hand feel that works great for a variety of playing styles. This guitar’s pickups are incredible as well, with three different types of single-coils for unmatched sonic versatility. You get a Texas Special in the bridge for hot, bluesy leads, a Fat ‘50s in the middle for some added girth, and a regular ’69 Strat pickup in the neck for iconic vintage Fender tones. Period-correct hardware from the 6-Saddle American Vintage Synchronized Tremolo bridge to the vintage-style tuners bring the guitar’s classic look and feel together nicely. From its astonishing visuals and great playability to its stunning feel and sound, this 2018 Limited 1968 Pink Paisley Stratocaster Relic is a wholly unique instrument.
