This 2008 Fender 1960 Stratocaster Relic hits me right where it hurts!  I'm a sucker for matching headstock Strats, especially with rosewood fretboards, and this Ice Blue Metallic finish is where its at!

The guitar weighs just over 7 pounds, 6 ounces, which certainly doesn't hurt.

There's some tasteful checking and light neck wear - the perfect relic job, as far as I'm concerned.

The frets look nearly new.  This guitar was part of a large collection of guitars that were bought, played a couple of times, then stashed.  We take each out, do a little cleaning, check for changes, issues, or repairs, do a truss rod check, then we restring them and set them up.  This one set up perfectly and passed all the tests.

The original Fender case includes the certificate of authenticity and the unopened bag of Fender goodies from the factory.
