Authentic reissue of a Sixties Strat with fixed bridge

With the Fender '61 Stratocaster Hardtail Journeyman Relic RW Faded Aged Sonic Blue the Fender Custom Shop sends an authentic reissue of a rare Hardtail Strat with Custom Colour Finish and fixed bridge into the race. The electric guitar with a slight Journeyman Ageing comes of course in historically correct construction with alder body, bolt-on maple neck and a "Round Laminated" rosewood fingerboard, while three hand-wound Custom Shop '60/'63 single-coils with subtly modernized circuitry provide excellent guitar tones between funk, Blues and rock. Last but not least, the eponymous Vintage-Style Strat Hardtail supports the lively and vibrant sound character of the '61 Stratocaster Hardtail Journeyman Relic RW Faded Aged Sonic Blue.

The traditional bolt-on construction of the '61 Hardtail Strat relies on an alder body and curly maple neck. Recessed ferrules hold the strings that pass through the body.

Authentic construction and carefully selected woods.

For the construction of the Limited Edition '61 Stratocaster Hardtail, the Fender Custom store uses carefully selected woods that give the guitar a characterful and lively sound character. The typical "Contour Body" design allows the two-piece alder body to sit comfortably on the player even after long gigs, while the pleasantly slim and rounded "'60s Style Oval C" profile of the bolt-on maple neck conveys optimal playing characteristics. The 21-fret rosewood fingerboard is also glued to the neck blank's camber using the historically correct "Round Laminated" method.

Three Custom Shop Hand-Wound '60/'63 single coils and the modified circuit with treble bleed provide premium vintage sounds with high tonal range.

Handwound single coils and modified circuitry

For the pickup of the '61 Hardtail Strat, the Fender Custom store chooses three hand-wound '60/'63 single coils. Built with historically correct specifications, the pickups elicit authentic vintage tones from the guitar amp with quick response to playing style and well-dosed bite. Here, the reverse-wound and polarized RWRP mid pickup in the popular intermediate positions of the 5-way switch promises a side-noise-free performance even in the overdrive channel. In addition to the rear tone control exclusively reserved for the bridge pickup, the subtly modified circuitry holds the Tone Saver Treble Bleed ready, which prevents unwanted treble loss when reducing the Guitar Volume.

While vintage-style tuners keep the guitar securely in the correct tuning, the Custom Shop label identifies it as a Limited Edition.

Fixed bridge and Vintage-Style tuner

Last but not least, Fender completes the Limited Edition '61 Stratocaster Hardtail Journeyman Relic RW Faded Aged Sonic Blue with reliable Hardware in authentic vintage style. The central component here is undoubtedly the fixed bridge in the form of the elegant Strat Hardtail, which with the string guide through the body contributes significantly to the lively sound character of the electric guitar. String tabs made of bent sheet steel also guarantee precise adjustment of intonation and string position. On the classic "Pre-CBS" headstock, Fender Vintage-Style tuners ensure precise tuning with high stability.
