“The Relic® process turns 20”
Mojo, vibe, coolness: words often used to describe a vintage Fender guitar that has not only seen history, but also made history. From the birth of rock ‘n’ roll to the unleashing of the popular Relic guitars, Fender has been there for the momentous events that defined guitar culture.
The year 1995 was a landmark in the history of the Fender Custom Shop—the year it introduced the world to Relic guitars at NAMM. Displayed in two glass cases with no fanfare, the ’51 Nocaster® and ’56 Mary Kaye Stratocaster® blindsided dealers who were awestruck by what they believed were original models displayed in tribute to the company’s roots. Little did they know, these two instruments were actually “new pairs of old shoes”—offering the beloved authentic vintage sound and broken-in feel of the original ’50s models without requiring decades of use.
