It looks pink, but that's just the aged tint to the Blonde finish - check the full sunlight pictures to see how the guitar changes in different light...
Wow, the neck on this thing is amazing! Its a mid-50's big, round D shape - not for everyone, but if you can hang it's the stuff!
Labeled a Limited 1955 Stratocaster Relic on the certificate of authenticity and showing all the appointments of a mid-50's Strat, the guitar include the Shop Floor Traveler paper that shows some interesting facts, making me wonder if it was custom ordered by a player or a dealer:
- "Neck: like 54 Strat 60 Anniversary"
- "General: 1955 REL STRAT"
- "NOTES: Build as 1955, '55 catalog repro, LTD CASE/CERT/DECAL/NECKPLATE"
- Seems like a variation that combines some features of other reissues, or maybe that's just how they start things out on a new build at Fender. Just thought I'd point it out...
I like the tasteful Relic work - not over the top at all, but with that great feel of a played-in guitar.
It's all-original and ready to rock, I just played it for an hour and got a little lost!
