The Fender Custom Shop guitars just keep coming.  All of them have been superb, and this Limited Edition '57 Relic in Gold finish follows suit.

The guitar is as new and includes everything that came with it from Fender.  It is an absolutely gorgeous piece with the best feeling Fender relic wear on the back of the neck.  

The handwired pickup selection is really cool - a HW Texas Special in the bridge position, a HW Fat 50 in the middle, and a HW 57 Strat in the neck.  The three come together in a killer way.

And of course, a Strat with a weight of 7 pounds, 6 ounces is quite nice!
