Photo Gallery: Fender Custom Shop 1958 Relic Stratocaster
This Fender Custom Shop '58 Relic Stratocaster is one of the new arrivals here at Guitar World, along with a beautiful '67 NOS Telecaster.
Here are some photos to tide you over until it makes an appearance in the pages of Guitar World.
Perfected into its current form by 1958, the Stratocaster in that year was poised for greatness and had already found its way into the hands of several legendary artists. As a musically wild new decade loomed on the not-so-distant horizon, the already ahead-of-its-time Stratocaster was ready for anything as the 1950s wound to a rocking ‘n’ rolling close.
The Custom Shop 1958 Relic Stratocaster evokes the first-decade glory of the model, with features including an alder body with a Relic (worn) lacquer finish in distinctive Chocolate Three-Color Sunburst, tinted one-piece maple neck with mid-’50s (10/’56) large V shape, maple fingerboard with 9.5” radius and 6105 frets, Master Design pickups with five-way switching, single-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style hardware, blonde case and certificate of authenticity.
