Limited Edition '62 Bone Tone Stratocaster® Journeyman Relic®, MN
At first glance, the Limited Edition 1962 Stratocaster appears to be an actual vintage instrument played and loved on stages for years.On further inspection, however, players will find this custom creation loaded with rare appointments and hidden gems for a brilliant playing experience. A two-piece select alder body wears a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, while the tinted rift-sawn maple neck features a comfortable ’60-style “oval C” profile, with a prototypical flat-laminated maple fingerboard.
The three-ply mint green pickguard hosts a set of uniquely calibrated master design hand-wound Bone Tone pickups, which provide dynamic Strat tone with increased headroom and clarity when playing with overdrive. A five-way switch leads to Strat “1/2 blender” wiring, which lets players blend the neck pickup with the bridge pickup in switch positions 1 and 2. Other features include 7.25”-9.5” vintage compound fingerboard radius, 21 narrow tall frets, Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and “wing” string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
