Fender Custom Shop MVP Series 1960 Stratocaster HSS Heavy Relic
Fender Custom Shop 1960 Stratocaster HSS Heavy Relic
Master Vintage Player's Series - Now available Team Built!
The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 60 Stratocaster Super Relic is part of the Master Vintage Players Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, built exclusively for Make'n Music in the Fender Custom Shop!!! These special instruments are custom designed to offer the Ultimate in Tone, Playability and Feel. Each guitar is hand-made to our specs in order to give the vibe and look of an actual vintage instrument, but with all the conveniences of a true modern player's piece.
This particular guitar is built to modified early 60s Strat specs and has a very special hand-distressed, Heavy Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! Another nifty feature is the Seymour Duncan JB Humbucker in the bridge position and an S-1 switch hidden discretely in the center of the volume knob. When activated this switch will split the bridge pickup.
The Fender Custom Shop Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual, modified vintage Fender guitars, but they play like a dream. Easier chording, faster leads and no fretting out when you go for the big bends thanks to the 1&11/16" nut width, flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius and 6105 fret wire. Adjustments are a breeze too! The Truss Rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck for a tweak.
I feel like I'm hosting an infomercial here- "But Wait! There's more!!!" It's all true though- These are great guitars. Great tone and versatility.
