For sale is a beautiful Shell Pink 1960 (’60) Stratocaster Relic ordered new from Wildwood guitars. Wildwood was the biggest proponent for ordering Custom Shop Stratocasters from Fender with period features but the improved 9.5″ fingerboard radius and the larger 6105 frets. This guitar also has a large “59C” neck profile spec’d by Wildwood. This is prefect for those who want a larger chucky neck on a Strat which can be difficult to find.

The guitar is in mint shape with hardly any fret ware to speak of. Action is setup low with 11’s and and it plays nice fast. The fretboard is exceptionally nice on this guitar and is smooth and buttery compared to the other CS Stratocasters I have owned. Pickups are superb sounding so I never changed them.

The relic on this one is light, closer to what is called Journeyman Relic today. Most relics from this era had significantly more patina and usually patches of missing paint. This one has some dings and light paint checking which nails the look and feel of an original Stratocaster that has been well cared for, not abused.

Bridge has been upgraded to the far superior Callaham Vintage S Bridge (I put them on every Strat). The original Relic bridge is included
