This Limited Edition Roasted 1961 Stratocaster connects you with everything that makes early 60's strats special and has must have modifications from Fender Custom Shop. The 2-piece roasted alder body has an aged sherwood green metallic over 3-color sunburst finish that was given the super heavy relic treatment. The quarter sawn, roasted maple neck feels great and is paired with Jumbo (6100) frets, a 9.5”-radius and a Large "C" profile.

A super-heavy relic lacquer finish imparts the look and feel of a guitar that has relentlessly lit up stage after stage for many years. Its two-piece select alder body is roasted to create a rich dark color and to simulate a guitar that has aged with a decrease in wood moisture content and an increase in sustain.

Fender Custom Shop gave this guitar Hand Wound Texas Special Strat pickups with 1/2 blender wiring. These pickups are over-wound for increased output, and are made with alnico 5 magnets and enamel-coated magnet wire for great midrange bite with crystalline highs and tight bass. 

Additional features include a tortoise shell pickguard, Custom Shop vintage synchronized bridge, vintage tuning machines and a bone nut.  Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

A Fender Custom Shop instrument is extraordinary. You know it when you play one—it’s definitely more than the sum of its parts. It’s filled with intangible, electrifying elements that add a new dimension to your playing experience. It’s as if the instrument itself is imbued with history, alive with the spirit of the place where it was built and the devotion of those who crafted it.

The Custom Shop is home to Fender’s most skilled and talented builders. It’s a bustling, noisy and creatively volcanic place that re-earns its nickname—the Dream Factory—every day. Custom Shop builders are completely dedicated to their art—part craftsman, part artist, part music fan and, more often than not, part mad scientist. They’re the best at what they do, and they pour all of their passion, hard-earned knowledge and skill into every instrument they build. It’s no ordinary place, and the creations that come from it are no ordinary instruments. This is Fender Custom Shop.
