2011 Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Greg Fessler
'55 Stratocaster Relic Electric Guitar White Blonde
Everyone dreams of finding a vintage Strat that's been broken in to,
perfection over the course of nearly 60 years.
This pre-owned 1955 Relic Stratocaster was constructed by Custom Shop,
Masterbuilder Greg Fessler to capture the spirit of those vintage instruments!
The White Blonde finish has been tastefully aged for a played-in look and feel.
The neck gets the light Relic treatment as well, with a comfortable soft "V" shape coupled with a ,
modern style 9.5" radius fingerboard for amazing playability.
All of the traditional Strat sounds are here as well,
with three Fender Fat '50s single-coils wired to a five-way switch for full-bodied neck pickup sounds,
quacky "in-between" tones, and biting treble leads.
