FENDER 2011 60s Road Worn STRATOCASTER Yellowed White Heavy Relic Strat 51102


Regular price $1,199
Description
For sale is a 2011 Fender 60s Road Worn Stratocaster in white that has had a very special relic job done on it. Comes with locking tuners and hard case. One look tells you this is miles beyond the recent Road Worn stuff Fender is producing. It's much closer to the Custom Shop looks. From 2008-2010 or so, the Road Worn stuff was much better--before they started watering it down, but this one is still beyond most early ones I've seen. 

There is some CHECKING on the paint (see pics). I've only seen a handful of RW's where they took the time to do that. Also, there is significant real yellowing to the plastics--not just a slapped on mint green pickguard. And overall, there is great attention to detail in the markings, the feathered sanding, extreme oxidation to screws and hardware. There is some very inventive dirty discoloration (see tummy cut). And the finish is very yellowed, not just painted with a yellow tint. Fender at some point said--wait, we can't spend this much time on these--and so now they don't. In short, get this guitar if you want a very affordable Custom Shop style medium/heavy relic. Or spend a few hundred less and get a new Road Worn that's a very light relic. Note, the back of the neck has a wear mark around the 5th fret or so. This may turn off some people who want a very smooth neck. Could probably be sanded out to some degree. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. This will come with an aftermarket hard case, Fender paperwork and tremolo bar. Weight is 7 pounds, 9 ounces. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

AGED TO PERFECTION
Those who prize older instruments with the battered look of years on the road and the scars of countless gigs can still have that authentically aged vibe without spending decades on the road themselves. The irresistibly cool look of finish worn through to the wood, rusted hardware, a bruised neck and yellowing plastic parts are yours right away with Road Worn instruments. The Road Worn '60s Stratocaster sounds, looks and feels like it's been there and back, has more than a few miles on it, and then some. With authentic 1960s styling aged to impart a lifetime of wear and tear that has somehow made it get even better, it's a must-have for the Strat player who appreciates broken-in look and vibe.
