Fender 1970 Custom Shop Journeyman Relic Closet Classic Faded 3TSB Stratocaster 2020 #33

Just in at Diablo guitars is this absolutely stunning Fender Custom Shop 1970 Journeyman Relic Closet Classic Stratocaster in a Faded three color tobacco burst. Despite our best efforts the glorious detail of this guitar is truly hard to capture with a camera! There is magnificent finish checking on the face of the headstock like a thin layer of broken glass. The relic nitrocellulose lacquer finish body is exactly the same in regards to epic detail and vibe with a few minor dings as well (From Factory). The detail and care put into making this guitar look, feel and sound like a guitar built in 1970 is beyond evident.

The master craftsman at the Fender Custom Shop left no stone unturned. 2 Piece hand selected Alder body, Tinted rift sawn Maple neck with the 1969 “U” Back shape, Rosewood fingerboard, 21 Narrow Tall frets (6105), Hand Wound 69 pickups, Strat Vintage Mod #2 Wiring…the guitar feels and sounds just incredible. Endless tone and vibe. Everything you’d expect from the Fender Custom shop and more.

The guitar has been freshly set up by the techs here at Diablo with .09-.42 D’Addario strings, strait neck and low fast action. The guitar includes all case candy, certificate of authenticity, build sheet and hang tags, as well as the the usual custom shop easter eggs (Polish cloth, care guide, custom strap, picks, etc). Ships in original Fender Custom Shop Hard Shell Case.
