NOTE: Viewing by appointment only !

Here we have one of the coolest Relic Strats that have ever come through the shop! It’s not for everyone but if you wanted the best looking and playing 63 Strat without buying one this is the guitar! The attention to detail is mind boggling and this guitar has one of the most comfortable necks I’ve ever held! All case candy and COA is present with the guitar. A new one of these will run you well over £5,000 now so here’s a chance to pickup one almost as new with a great saving. The guitar also has an Ash body too!

Body Condition: 9.5/10 – Obviously this is a super heavy relic so it’s covered in dings, bumps and all the other relicing goodness! The guitar has spent most of its life in its hard case so no user damage or marks have been put on the guitar.

Neck: 9.5/10 – WOW! I did not want to take my hands off this neck! It’s silky smooth and the hand just glides effortlessly, obviously this is a 63 profile so is an Oval C. No fret wear and no dings or bumps to the back of the neck.

Hardware: 9.5/10 – Aged hardware, but all functions perfectly and is of course all stock.

Electrics: 9/10
Sockets, pots and switches etc are wear and tear items. The electrics on this guitar have been tested and are in very good working order, but my standard disclaimer is it’s a used guitar and one must expect SOME occasional electrical ‘scratching’ noise, crackling and popping when adjusting pots and switches. When we tested it, this guitar was working very very well.

This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it’s style so has a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing.

Case: Comes with the Fender Custom Shop hard case, COA and all case candy sealed.
