Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Stratocaster Journeyman Relic Aged Vintage White
A distinctively modern take on the legendary classic returns to the main stage. The Postmodern Strat® delivers an integral player-oriented configuration while capturing the essence of original design and brilliance. A two-piece select alder body wears a Journeyman Relic finish that gives the guitar a well-loved look and feel, while Closet Classic hardware provides extra gleam.
We chose Aged Vintage White with a Tortoise Shell pickguard to go for a classic, old school vintage look - when combined with the modern playability, Dual Mag pickups and custom wiring, you get the best of both worlds.
The rift-sawn maple neck has a ’60-style “oval C” profile and features a round-lam rosewood fingerboard with a 9.5”-12” compound radius and 21 jumbo frets for classic feel, improved comfort and easy note bends in the upper register. We also went for a Heavy Relic back of neck to give it an extremely broken in, comfortable feel.
Dual-Mag II pickups deliver well-balanced tone with shimmering clear highs and rich lows, with a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup (for hum cancellation), five-way switch and Strat ½ Blender with Greasebucket II wiring, which features a .05uF capacitor for a late ’60s-style tonal sweep and less gain loss when attenuated.
Other features include a four-ply brown shell pickguard, Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree with tall metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
