Relic Stratocaster Style Guitar - Vintage Guitar

£135.00 UK Post Free – Contact for International Shipping.

Relic (actually a survivor) Stratocaster with tapped vintage type humbucker. Loud and crunchy. 

The body is over 20 years old, solid wood (medium weight) and has been abused over its life time. Finished in dark brown and black, this Stratocaster type body has been fully serviced, with very little surgery needed to make it healthy and completely functional again. It still has battle scars, dents, crackled paintwork (in places) and is not shiny and new. All I did was buff the paintwork with a mop. I love it!!!!!


The neck is a replacement and the headstock has been painted to match the imperfect look of the body. New machine heads have been fitted. The pickups are replacements and they sound very British (indie rock). The bridge pickup is tapped and can be switched via a micro switch near the 5 pole standard Stratocaster switch. The new scratchplate is a Fender type (screw hole positions are very nearly correct). A new complete tremolo bridge has been fitted.

As a nod to its past, the rear screws fixing the new tremolo cover are the original rusty ones.

This is an excellent reloved example of this great black Vintage guitar

Black Vintage Guitar

This black Vintage guitar plays really well. The neck is straight and has plenty of life left in it. The machine heads are the original Wilkinson hardware and has an early Wilkinson type bridge. The bridge pickup is a genuine new (2018) Wilkinson HOT Single Coil Pickup which has an early Fender Squire Script cover, the middle and neck pickups are earlier 60s style ‘twangy’ pickups, which sound as good as the original Wilkinson ones. New light strings fitted.
