At the dawn of the 1960s, the Stratocaster stood poised for a wild new decade full of exciting and innovative new music. Music history beckoned as never before—sounds would be wrung from the Stratocaster in the '60s that its designers and its players of the previous decade couldn't possibly have dreamed of.
The Custom Shop honors that turn-of-the-decade instrument with the 1960 Relic Stratocaster with Matching Headstock. Features include an alder body with a Relic (worn) lacquer finish, lightly tinted maple neck with large C shape and matching headstock, rosewood fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 6105 frets, 1960 Stratocaster pickups with five-way switching, three-ply mint green pickguard, vintage-style hardware, wing string tree, brown hard-shell case and certificate of authenticity. Available in Fiesta Red, Shoreline Gold and Surf Green.
