#Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 1962 Relic Shell Pink


The Fender Custom Shop not only knows how to build instruments that sound really good, but also attaches great importance to their appearance and the authentic aging of their reissue instruments. So also in this case. History says that in the early 1960s, Fender added a palette of DuPont colors to its program, which as "Custom Color" cost 5 percent extra. The origin of these custom colors comes from the automobile industry, and so the pink DeSoto road cruisers were the template for the Fender custom color "Shell Pink". This finish is the rarest of all custom colors and was only listed in the Fender catalog between 1960 and 1963.

Authentic 60s look with modern ingredients – this was the premise in the Fender Custom Shop when designing this extraordinary guitar. This Strat was equipped with a 12" fingerboard radius, which is significantly flatter than the 9.5" radius that was common at that time. In addition, a modern V-Style neck is used as well as 6105 Narrow Jumbo frets. This mixture is perfect for Strat players who love fast solos, shimmering vibratos and intense bendings. A clever solution has been thought of in the Fender Custom Shop for the pickups. The "69 Strat" pickup in the neck position delivers a warm, percussive sound with wonderfully crisp overtones, the middle pickup, a custom "Fat60s" model, impressively recreates the sound of the 60s, during the Texas Special in the bridge position provides a powerful lead sound of the highest quality. Additionally, a modern 5-way circuit was installed by the Fender Custom Shop, which in the intermediate positions 2 and 4 ensure a fine harmonious sound. An built-in treble bleed circuit prevents any loss of treble when turning back the volume control.
