2014 Fender Stratocaster "Post Modern Journeyman Relic"


Looks like a nice authentic 60s reissue strat, but it comes with some contemporary features: Contoured neck heel, staggered tuners, nice medium frets, 9.5" fretboard radius. Fantastic sounding handwound Fender Custom Shop pickups (no need to replace them at all!). Top condition,Reduced price, however, because the previous owner had mounted a different bridge PU for a short time, for which the pickup routing had to be minimally deepened - the whole thing is of course invisible, because under the pickguard and does not impair the sound or the further handling - for protocol! ! + + + Comes with original Custom Shop case, accessories, Custom Shop certificate. + + + "The Postmodern Stratocaster is elegantly designed with a reappraisal of modern assumptions. A time-honored classic crafted with six decades of “Fender firsts,” it has a lightweight ash body with a comfortably deep contours and cutaway heel, a tinted quartersawn maple neck with a finely sculpted ’60s “oval C” profile and Heavy Relic back finish, a fast compound-radius (9.5”-12”) fingerboard (round-laminated rosewood or one-piece maple) with 21 narrow jumbo frets, and three scintillating Ancho Poblano single-coil pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) with modern five-way switching, Vintage Modified #2 wiring and a special “Tone-Saver” treble-bleed network that keeps tone consistent at any volume (no loss of highs when decreasing volume). Other premium features include a three-ply parchment pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, staggered tuners (no string tree), Schaller® strap locks and Fender “F” logo engraved neck plate. Available in NOS and “Journeyman” Relic® lacquer body finishes, the latter of which imparts the appearance of years of aging and light use without heavy wear and tear. Finishes include Black and Three-Color-Sunburst (rosewood or one-piece maple fingerboard); Daphne Blue, Olympic White and Candy Apple Red (rosewood fingerboard); and Sonic Blue and HLE Gold (one-piece maple fingerboard). Includes black hard-shell case and Custom Shop certificate of authenticity."
