Description

This mint, 2016 Fender Custom Shop ’56 Relic Stratocaster Seafoam Green just in! 

We love the 60s custom-color Strats and this barely played '56 reissue is a great example of a really good / modern production Fender. Lightweight, resonant, snappy, responsive, gorgeous tones...everything we want in a great Strat is here in spades.

Other than the wear it came from the factory with, there are no issues or additional wear and tear. We did a fresh setup and it plays beautifully with nice medium-low action. The satin finished/worn neck is slightly chunky a la typical 50s Fenders but is by no means a baseball bat - it's actually very comfortable and conducive to a variety of playing styles. 

The hand-wound '56 pickups sounds fantastic. Classic Strat tones with a slightly beefier bridge pickup tone (always a good thing as the bridge position on a Strat can get a little harsh at times). 

Simply a killer Custom Shop Strat, nothing more, nothing less! Priced with original hardshell case and paperwork.
