Fender Custom Shop Exclusive Masterbuilt '57 Stratocaster Ultimate Relic Electric Guitar White Blonde
Everyone dreams of finding a vintage Strat that's been broken in to perfection over the course of nearly 60 years. This 1957 Relic Stratocaster aims to capture the spirit of those vintage instruments!

We approached the Fender Custom Shop with an idea for the most beat-up, played-in Stratocaster we'd ever seen, and we wanted it to feel like it had been played every night for 60 years. We realized that we would have to take the relicing processes developed in the Custom Shop to their limits to produce this Ultimate Relic Stratocaster.

Masterbuilt by Custom Shop craftsman Jason Smith, this Strat features a White Blonde finish that's been aged for a beyond-played-in look and feel. The areas where buckle rash and pick wear are normally found are worn completely through to the Ash body. The neck gets the Relic treatment as well, with a classic soft "V" shape coupled with a modern style 9.5" radius fingerboard. All of the traditional Strat sounds are here as well, with three Fender Custom Shop '50s Strat single-coils wired to a five-way switch for full-bodied neck pickup sounds, quacky "in-between" tones, and biting treble leads.

Fender Custom Shop Music Zoo Exclusive Hardtop Stratocaster Double-Humbucker Electric Guitar Black Cherry Burst
The Exclusive Hardtop Stratocaster guitar is the result of a collaboration between The Music Zoo and Fender Custom Shop. We envisioned an instrument that acknowledged the Fender Stratocaster as being the original inspiration for all of the Strat-type guitars that broke the mold by having humbucker pickups and other modifications that earned them the moniker, “Super Strats.”

So, the Hardtop is the Zoo’s own take on the Super Strat concept, as made by the source! They’re distinguished by having very vintage-like Bare Knuckle Mule humbucker pickups, and the guitars are available in one- or two-pickup models. You’ll also notice that these guitars are built without pickguards, hence the name Hardtop; all electronics are rear-loaded through the instrument’s back. This Hardtop example, finished in a gorgeous Black Cherry Burst, has two pickups that each have independent volume controls and one master tone control. A heavy-duty three-way toggle switch is used as the pickup selector.

The Hardtop’s body is lightweight ash, and the one-piece maple neck has a rounded “V” profile and an Indian rosewood fretboard. There’s definitely a minimal aesthetic at work here, and you can see this by the headstock’s bare-bones NoCaster-like Fender decal. Still, when it comes down to actually playing the Hardtop, you’ll hear how using hand-selected quality woods along with the right components and craftsmanship truly make a difference. The guitar resonates effortlessly unplugged while responding with rich overtones and nuances.
