The Fender Custom Shop commemorates the diamond jubilee of the world renowned Stratocaster. This 60th Anniversary 1954 Heavy Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar pays tribute to the very first model year of the most sought after and influential electric guitar in history—finely crafted with a wide selection of appointments and features, all combined with a heavy relic treatment that really gives this Strat that heavily-played vibe.

The body of the 60th Anniversary 1954 Heavy Relic Stratocaster is crafted from a single piece of ash, just as the original, and wears a classic, heavily battered 2-color sunburst nitro lacquer finish that evokes decades of hard use, abuse and hard-fought wear and tear. The one-piece quartersawn maple neck is carved into the comfortable 1954 "U"-shaped profile, and has been tinted and worn to mimic an aged vintage neck that's been played upon for over a half a century. Also worn to perfection, the 9.5" maple fingerboard provides a well-used feel and aesthetic. The fingerboard comes loaded with 21 narrow jumbo 6105 frets to provide smooth modern playability while traditional black dot inlays cater to the authentic looks of this Strat. New for 2014, the 60th Anniversary 1954 Heavy Relic Stratocaster comes equipped with a set of 1954 Single-Coil Strat pickups to dish out that timeless tone and original-era voice that made the Strat an instant classic. For modern versatility and flexibility, these pickups are routed through a 5-way pickup switch, a master volume control and two tone controls. Aside from just delivering vintage tone, these 1954 pickups' also look the part with slightly rusted polepieces.

For additional vintage character, the nickel/chrome hardware exhibits substantial rusting, down to every last screw. A set of vintage-style tuners are paired with a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six "patent pending" saddles. The serial number-stamped trem plate gives this 60th Anniversary Heavy Relic Strat that unmistakable 1954 touch. This Fender Custom Shop 60th Anniversary 1954 Heavy Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar comes with the full protection tweed "center-pocket" hardshell case with Stratocaster 60th Anniversary embroidery. Inside the case is the Certificate of Authenticity, a Custom Shop Instrument Cable and Guitar Strap.

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
