Fender Custom Shop 1968 Stratocaster Relic

Dealer Select "Master Vintage Player" Series 

MVP Strats and Teles are the Ultimate Relic guitars

Jimi Hendrix / Ritchie Blackmore inspired build!

The Vintage Fender Strat- REDEFINED! This 68 Stratocaster Relic is part of the Dealer Select Master Vintage Player Series (MVP) Limited Edition, built exclusively for Make'n Music in the Fender Custom Shop!!! These 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.

Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, but they play like a dream. This particular guitar features modified Fender Custom Shop 1969 Stratocaster specs with an incredible neck - The '69 small U profile feels like the best comfy "C" shape you have ever felt. Easier chording, faster leads and no fretting out when you go for the big bends thanks to the flatter, 9.5" fingerboard radius and narrow/tall 6105 fret wire. Adjustments are a breeze too! The Bullet Truss Rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck for a tweak. The neck also uses a vintage-style 4-bolt pocket for the best tone and stability.

These guitars are spec'd with the Custom Shop '69 pickups in the neck and middle position for that "Wind Cries Mary" Sparkle and Chime, but the bridge position gets a Custom Shop Texas Special pickup for a slightly ballsier, beefier tone. As an added bonus we requested an S-1 switch, discreetly hidden in the volume control, to activate the neck+bridge pickup combination for all those Jimmy Page / Ritchie Blackmore type sounds. Even a bit of Tele tone flavor. Of course all the classic Stratocaster tones you know and love are still there too - Right where they should be.
