Custom Shop Limited Edition 70th Anniversary 1954 Journeyman Strat, Vintage White

Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 70th Anniversary 1954 Journeyman Strat, Ash Body, Roasted Maple Neck, Custom Vintage White Finish, Commemorative 70th Anniversary Custom Shop Tweed Hardshell Case w/Red Plush Interior

Hand crafted by Fender's most skilled and talented builders, the dedicated Custom Shop technicians - part craftsman, part artist, part music fan and, more often than not, part mad scientist - imbue each guitar with history and the spirit of "The Dream Factory". Nothing Beats a Fender Custom Shop guitar for Pristine Vintage Tone and Unparalleled Playability!


To celebrate 70 years of the Stratocaster®—the platinum anniversary of the world’s greatest electric guitar—the Fender Custom Shop introduces the Limited Edition Roasted ’54 Stratocaster® Journeyman Relic®. Its two-piece select ash body (with offset seam on the treble side) resonates with singing highs, sweet midrange and tight lows, and wears a sensational Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish in Custom Made Vintage White finish!

The one-piece roasted quartersawn maple neck is fashioned with a special 70th anniversary Soft “V” profile based on an incredible Strat® neck from July 1954, topped by a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall (6105) frets and a 1.625” bone nut. Three Custom Shop hand-wound ’54 Strat® pickups deliver that classic Strat® voice with clear, bell-like highs, routed through vintage '54 Strat® wiring with wax paper cap and five-way switching.

All in all it’s a distinctive combination of 1950s-inspired aesthetics, with other premium features including an eight-hole gold anodized pickguard, 1954-style ABS white pickup covers and control knobs, Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuners, disc string tree, special 70th Anniversary Stratocaster® neck plate, deluxe embroidered hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

Journeyman Relic®

Used but not abused.

Handed down or changed hands through the years, but mostly played around the house, with the occasional jam session or weekend gig. Has been well taken care of over the years but has finish checking, some “friendly” down-to-the-wood nicks and dings, dullish hardware, and moderate playing wear, a very lucky find.
