2017 Fender Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster Relic, candy apple red


Fantastic instrument, top condition, great fat neck and super juicy sound! Unbelieveable great aging! Comes with original case, accessories, certificate. Here we have for sale an extremely special guitar. In 2017 Lee Anderton & Danish Pete spec’d out 5 Custom Shop stratocasters with their favourite specs to be sold exclusively by Andertons in a very limited quantity, Fender Custom Shop confirmed that this guitar is one of three. You can see it in action in the Andertons video “You Heard The Best Teles - Now Here Come the Strats!”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XW88I1YaeNM The body of this strat is constructed using lightweight Ash, and is finished in a stunning candy apple red finish which has been given the standard ‘relic’. This is a great option as you get the awesome worn look and lacquer checking without being too over the top. The neck is where this guitar is very special, it is a John English ‘59 profile, constructed using single piece quarter sawn Maple which has been heavily reliced and given rolled fret edges. It is a really round ‘C’ profile which is quite meaty for a strat, thicker than a 60’s neck but not quite as thick as a ‘54, the heavily relicing on the neck gives it a fantastic played in feel, removing the stickiness of a new nitro neck. ‘59 was a transitional year and is significant as it was the year rosewood was introduced on the fretboard. Pickup wise this guitar is equipped with a trio of the most popular pickups available in the Custom Shop catalogue, a ‘69 in the neck, ‘65 RWRP in the middle and a Texas Special in the bridge. These pickups are quintessentially ‘stratty’, the texas special in the bridge giving a hot SRV style tone and the ‘65 & ‘69 are less harsh to make for mellow tones.
