A pivotal time for the evolution of the Strat®, the 1958 model year ushered in the now-classic 3-color Sunburst, while retaining a one-piece maple neck. Heavily aged to fashion a truly vintage aesthetic and feel, our expert artisans at Fender® Custom Shop lend a Heavy Relic® treatment, providing a decades-worn twist to accompany fresh player-centric features like a 9.5”-radius fingerboard, 21 6105 frets, and Vintage Modified #2 wiring. Exhibiting a flame AA quartersawn neck and loaded with hand-wound Strat® Fat 50’s pickups, the 1958 Heavy Relic® Strat® looks and plays like a true classic.
Sporting a two-piece alder body---ash for Aged White Blonde---with deep, sleek contours and a single ply Eggshell pickguard, this guitar screams classic Strat®.
Other appointments include a medium-tinted “ ’59 C”-shaped neck, 5-way switch, American Vintage synchronized bridge, vintage tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
