Fender 1956 Stratocaster Relic Custom Shop Daphne Blue 2004

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This 2004 Fender 1956 Stratocaster Relic from the Custom Shop is in mint condition, having left Fender with a nice, light, and realistic relic job as opposed to some that go over the top.

It is a perfect player that set up quite nicely with a new set of strings, needed due to the fact that the guitar was purchased new, played a couple times, then stashed until now.  

We check everything as we would a vintage piece, right down to the truss rod to make sure there is room for future neck relief adjustments. 

The pickups have that early Fender tone, being of lower-wind and lower output. 

A beautiful piece in one of Fender's coolest colors.

All the case candy and paperwork is included in the original case, along with the original purchase receipt and Guitar Center price tag.
