Inspired by a classic 1960 Stratocaster and tweaked for modern players, the Fender Limited Edition '60 Roasted Strat Heavy Relic begs to be picked up and played. Starting with a roasted alder body and ultra-stable quartersawn maple neck with a " '60 Oval C"-shaped profile, ideal for almost any playing style, Fender then roasted the wood, making it more resonant for enhanced sustain, and adding a delectable chocolate-like aesthetic. The heavy Relic lacquer finish gives it the look and comfortable playing feel of a well-loved instrument that's been in service for decades. Hot-rodded with a trio of hand-wound Ancho Poblano single-coil pickups including a RWRP middle pickup to reduce hum and Vintage Modified #2 wiring, this Strat sings with spicy, balanced tone that can make your music come alive in more ways. The 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard features extra-rolled edges and wears 21 57110 super-jumbo frets for sublime playing feel.

Other features include a nitro Tortoiseshell pickguard, 5-way pickup switch, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, engraved "Limited Edition" neck plate and Certificate of Authenticity.
