#Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster Early 1961 Heavy Relic 3-Tone Sunburst Carlos Lopez


At the end of 2019, Fender introduced Carlos Lopez as its new Master Builder, who thereafter helped develop high quality Custom Shop instruments for Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Robin Trower. In addition to a number of his own creations, Lopez created exceptional Heavy Relic Stratocaster models that testified to high quality and authenticity. Since Carlos Lopez has announced that he will leave the Fender Custom Shop, this is a unique and probably last chance to get one of Carlos Lopez's rare Masterbuilt Strats. Grab it while it's still available!

And with this precious 1961 Strat from the hands of Carlos Lopez everything is really right down to the last detail! One recognizes immediately that Lopez has meticulously set about reproducing a piece of guitar history from the early days of Rock 'n' Roll as authentically as possible. There you can find historically correct two "patent numbers" in the headstock logo. The striking and absolutely authentic Heavy Relic Aging tells exciting stories of hard years "on the road". Of sex, drugs & Rock 'n' Roll. Of countless cigarettes stuck between the sides of the headstock, leaving visibly burned spots. About a guitar that lived Rock 'n' Roll and didn't have to eke out a miserable existence as a showcase object. Are you ready for a new experience? Then pick up this unique Strat! With its hand-wound Fat 60s pickups, it sounds like a really good Strat from the 60s should sound, and can easily compete with the best old originals. Made for soulful Blues and tough Rock 'n' Roll! One thing is for sure, you will never give it away. It will become one with you and be a faithful companion for a lifetime.

Additional notes:
1961 Strat, correct headstock-logo w. 2 patent numbers,  back of neck really worn & dirty, also headstock really worn w. marks of cigarettes, ends of frets quite straight for more space on top,  Pickguard with aluminum-shield
