FENDER Michael Landau 1968 Relic Stratocaster 3-Color Sunburst

Authentic replica of Michael Landau's 1968 vintage Strat, including case and certificate

The  Fender Michael Landau 1968 Relic Stratocaster 3-Color Sunburst  is an authentic recreation of the original 1968 vintage Strat which the legendary session guitarist from Los Angeles used on countless well-known recordings. Following the historical guidelines, this electric guitar features a light alder body and a bolt-on maple neck with a "Round-Laminated" rosewood fretboard and a "Custom C" profile for easy handling. Three Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s single coils provide the guitar amp with expressive vintage sounds that blend in with almost any style of music. The traditional hardware configuration with a 6-saddle synchronized tremolo and precise vintage-style tuners completes the Fender Michael Landau 1968 Relic Stratocaster 3-Color Sunburst.

Selected woods in nitrocellulose finish

For the construction of the Fender Michael Landau 1968 Relic Stratocaster, the Fender Custom Shop uses only carefully selected woods that guarantee a lively sound and low weight of the electric guitar. Accordingly, the  body is made of light alder , while the  bolt-on maple neck carries the  large headstock  of the CBS era and the historically correct  "Round-Laminated" rosewood fretboard  glued to the radius specified by the neck. Here the comfortable  "Custom C" profile  and the  7.25" vintage fretboard radius  promise comfortable playing. Another absolute highlight is the  artificially aged nitro finish , which recreates the look and feel of a perfectly played-in vintage original..

Three Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s single coils promise authentic vintage sounds coming from your guitar amp.

Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups for versatile vintage sounds

The Fender Michael Landau 1968 Relic Stratocaster 3-Color Sunburst features  three Fat '50s single coils  wound in the hallowed halls of the Fender  Custom Shop . Equipped with  Alnico V magnets  and the historically correct  Formvar wire , these pickups deliver powerful vintage sounds with fat basses, vocal midrange and the typical clarity in the trebles. The lively dynamic response of the single-coil pickups supports expressive electric guitar playing in a wide range of styles between pop, rock and blues. The pickups are controlled via a subtly modified  5-way circuit  whose first tone control acts on the neck and middle pickups, while the second tone control determines the treble spectrum of the bridge pickup.

Thanks to its smooth handling, it enhances melodies and chords with shimmering vibratos. Behind the  bone nut , the classic large Fender headstock features  six vintage-style tuners  for precise and stable tuning of this electric guitar.
