FENDER CLASSIC SERIES 60s STRATOCASTER Road Worn Heavy Relic White Strat 49556


Regular price $1,180
Description
You're looking at a 2011 Fender Classic Series 60s Road Worn Stratocaster in white finish.This is a rather exceptional example of the Road Worn series, as you'll see it has more wear than most. The only Fender's with such a heavy relic are usually the Custom Shop models. May be because it's an early one, third year of production--or maybe the Fender employee was just on a tear that day!

This Strat is really for someone who wants a heavily reliced guitar. It has tons of wear marks all over, and it even has some areas of finish checking, which the newer Road Worns never have. In fact, the recent Road Worn guitars have become quite watered down and show very little wear and all look the same. The early years of these look much closer to Custom Shop quality--not just template-based relics stamped out like cookie cutter guitars.

All the hardware is dulled and has a light patina of scuffs and marks. The paint wear patterns are real-world realistic. Back of neck nicely worn down to wood for a faster satin feel. (Look at the pic of back of neck to see the bird's eye!) Note, this has rosewood fretboard--not Pau Ferro--like on newer models. Frets show some mild grooves but still plays well all over the neck. Weight is 7 pounds, 6 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

Manufacturer Info
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.
