An Elegant, Contemporary Take On the Classic Strat!

This Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic solidbody electric guitar is a modern twist on a well-loved classic. Built from lightweight ash and loaded with Fat '60s single-coil pickups, this elegant, contemporary Strat gives you jangly, smooth, sparkling tones with a distinct midrange bite. You also get modern 5-way switching and a special "Tone-Saver" treble-bleed network that preserves your high end when decreasing your guitar's volume. Topped off with an American Vintage trem, a stylish "F" logo engraved neck plate, and a modish Journeyman Relic laquer finish, this Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic solidbody electric guitar is sure to become a Sweetwater favorite!

Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Fat '60s Stratocaster single-coil pickups provide classic Strat tone
  • Quartersawn neck gives you ultra-stability and ultra-playability
  • Journeyman Relic finish adds character to your axe
Fat '60s Stratocaster single-coil pickups provide classic Strat tone

No matter how well you play, your tone lives and dies by the pickups in your axe. This Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic solidbody electric guitar sports three Fat '60s single-coil pickups, which are known far and wide for their classic bell-like, jangly, smooth, and bluesy tone. These pickups deliver bright and clear cleans with the perfect amount of midrange bite. When you plug your 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic 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. On top of that, you get a reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup with a modern 5-way blade pickup selector and a "Tone-Saver" treble-bleed network.

Quartersawn neck gives you ultra-stability and ultra-playability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why this Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic solidbody electric guitar features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of this 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic's contoured heel when you're playing higher up the fretboard. Down low, you'll appreciate the compound-radius (9.5"-12") round-laminated fingerboard that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed fretwork.

Journeyman Relic finish adds character to your axe

If you want your axe to look and feel "broke in," but without the vintage vibe, you'll love the Journeyman Relic finish on this Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic solidbody electric guitar. Although it looks as though it has been a well-cared-for, albeit well-loved, member of your guitar collection for years, this Strat nonetheless projects an aura of distinct modernism. Aged, but without the heavy wear-and-tear, this guitar will feel as though you've played it for a lifetime!

Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Relic laquer finish
  • Fender's classic '60s "C" neck profile serves up outstanding feel
  • Compound-radius (9.5"-12") round-laminated fingerboard with 6105 (medium jumbo) frets for fast playing
  • Fat '60s Stratocaster single-coil pickups provide classic Strat tone
  • Reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup, modern 5-way switch wiring, and "Tone-Saver" network
  • Schaller strap locks keep your axe on your shoulder, where it belongs
  • Staggered tuning machines eliminate the need for a string tree
  • Black textured vinyl hard-shell case included
This Fender Custom Shop 2015 Postmodern Stratocaster is a modern twist on a well-loved classic!
