2020 Fender Custom Shop 1956 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic

$ 3999.00

I purchased this guitar brand new and am the only owner. Never gigged. Only played in the privacy of my smoke free home. Always stored in its case when not in use. The guitar is in like new condition, but of course it shows use due to the journeyman relic. And yes……it looks like a Gilmour Strat! Great looking and great playing guitar.

Regarding the Journeyman relic’ing found on this ’56 Strat……you get a look and feel that’s used but not abused. Gives the look of being well taken care of, but also definitely been played. Totally broken in, but holds up like a brand new electric guitar.

Custom Shop Fat 50’s pickups give you the ’50s chime with a little extra bite.  The one piece maple neck is super comfortable with the Modern “C” carve.  This is a very slim neck – it’s easy to grip and play fast on.  The compound radius of 7.25 – 9.5″ gives you the vintage feel for chording, but flattens out slightly as you go up the neck, for easy playability while in the upper register and doing bends.  Weighs in at 7.5 pounds.
