FENDER USA Custom Shop 1956 Heavy Relic HSS "Fiesta Red + Maple" (2021)
A sort for lightweight Alder body is finished in Fiesta Red, it's a real beauty! Authentically aged, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. The thin nitro finish also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively. A guitar this special needs a pickup up set that is incredible versatile. Loaded with the POMO Strat HSS controls it features a Seymour Duncan SH4B Jeff Beck in the bridge and a pair of Hand Wound Fat 50's in both middle and bridge position. These pickups are beautifully dynamic and will cover you in all situations.
Condition Report: A 2021 model here, so not much time to have been played in within the space of a couple of months. One can consequently expect a new guitar here with a hefty discount off the RRP which was at around the £4k mark. Blue light reveals nothing in the way of play-wear. Nothing out of place either and the neck feels amazing on this.
