Fender Custom Shop 2019 Postmodern Stratocaster, Journeyman Relic, Faded Aged Blue Ice Metallic Overview.Combining timeless Fender style with player-friendly features, the Postmodern Strat is a gig-ready instrument with thoughtful design touches that could only come from the Fender Custom Shop. The two-piece select alder body wears a flashcoat, thin lacquer finish that lets the wood breathe with more resonance while wearing in a distinctively personal way. Strong and stable, tinted riftsawn maple neck sports a comfortable '60s Syle Oval "C"-shaped profile that works well for almost any playing style, while the modern 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets offer a familiar experience. Designed for hum-free, vintage-informed tone, the trio of hand-wound single-coil pickups includes a hot Texas Special bridge pickup, RWRP Fat ‘50s in the middle position to reduce hum and a ’69 in the neck position. We tied it all together with Fat ‘50s wiring, and then to ensure it’s as RFI- and EMI-resistant as possible, we shielded the pickups and control routes. The Journeyman Relic treatment gives this guitar the look and feel of an often-played original, personalized with a “decked” tremolo and extra tremolo springs for increased stability.
Other features include a contoured neck heel, 4-Ply 11-Hole Brown Shell pickguard, Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style staggered tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
