Fender Custom Shop ’56 Stratocaster Relic Black/Gold Parts - 2001
Alright; a black Strat with gold parts made by the Fender Custom Shop; my first thoughts; this is going to be pretty good! And, I’m not disappointed at all! This is a beautiful-looking Custom Shop ’56 Stratocaster relic reissue with gold parts; and my first impression whilst playing it unplugged; this thing projects and has some honk to it! Plugging it in and it’s easy to see why Fender Custom Shop guitars are loved by player’s all around the globe! Super-sweet, glassy tone from all three pickups, a very slight V shape neck, the gold parts look great and, even though the relic job on the fingerboard appears to be heavy, I can’t say I noticed it all while I was playing it. It has a nice weight at 7.17 lbs too. A great Strat to suit collector or player that comes with its original tweed hard shell case and its COA; there’s even a little bit of case candy!
