20 Years of the Fender Relic

Twenty years ago Fender started selling relic'd guitars, which have taken the industry by storm. The Fender Custom Shop is celebrating these prized guitars with the 20th Anniversary Relic Stratocaster. Like the relic'd guitars that came before it, the 20th Anniversary Strat offers you more than a worn look. The relic'ing process truly gives you the comfortable and familiar feel of a perfectly broken-in Strat. If you want vintage, but need new, celebrate with Fender by grabbing a 20th Anniversary Relic Stratocaster.

20th Anniversary Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Fender's relic work
  • Premium Custom Shop pickups deliver iconic Strat tone
  • Relic finish and hardware for vintage vibe
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Fender's relic work

The year was 1995, and Fender placed two brand-new guitars in glass cases at the NAMM show. Initially everyone thought they were looking at original '50s instruments, until Fender revealed they were their first "relic'd" instruments. Built new, but with a look, feel, and sound of a great vintage instrument. The guitar industry was immediately polarized. Whether you love it or not, there's no denying electric guitar design has never been the same since the introduction of the iconic Relic.

Premium Custom Shop pickups deliver iconic Strat tone

No matter how well you play, your tone lives and dies by the pickups in your axe. The 20th Anniversary Relic Stratocaster sports three Custom Shop Fat '50s single-coil pickups, which are known far and wide for their classic Strat tone. These pickups deliver bright and clear cleans with the perfect amount of midrange with bite. When you plug your Custom Shop Relic Stratocaster into your favorite tube amplifier, you'll find everything from smooth mellow tones to outrageously aggressive leads, all within a casual twist of a volume knob.

Relic finish and hardware for vintage vibe

As you can imagine, a true 1950s Strat would show signs of wear and tear, and this Fender Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Relic Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar is finished to represent those years of playing. But with 20 years of perfecting the relic'ing process. The worn finish on the body and neck, and the aged and slightly rusty hardware will make you wonder if it really isn't a true vintage guitar. The 20th Anniversary Relic Stratocaster is sure to please even the pickiest of guitar lovers.
