Product Description

This classic beauty is on order and expected to arrive in August 2022, snap it up before someone else does.

The early 1960s saw some important changes to the Stratocaster, including a new pickguard configuration, neck profile and a "round-laminated" rosewood fingerboard, all culminating in a compelling new contemporary look and sound. The 1963 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic is a fine testament to these innovations, featuring a two-piece select alder body with deep contours for perfect comfort, a quartersawn maple neck with a time-honored 1963 "C" profile, and a 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets for steady play up and down the neck.

Hand-wound Fat '60s pickups with reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup are given extra turns of wire to produce rich '60s tone, sent to a five-way switch and vintage modified #2 wiring on a three-ply mint green pickguard. Other features include a Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
