Issue Cover

Guitarist  |  April 2016  

Golden-era beauties from Fender’s Custom Shop. The artificial ageing of guitars divides opinion between those who get it, and others who think those souls that do are deluded fools. Well, we love both shiny new, heavily worn and all points in between and luckily for everyone Fender does, too. So, here we have two levels of Relic’ing there are five in total, from ‘hidden under the bed all its life’ to ‘worked half to death’ and all points in between. Our duo up for review comprises a Limited Edition, heavily worn Strat that debuted at Winter NAMM in January, and a lightly aged Tele from the regular 2016 Custom Shop line. Both are built to incredible levels of vintage detail and each is going to set someone’s heart racing.

Whether you’re just starting out with your first guitar or you’ve been hamming the strings for years, no matter what your level, Guitarist Magazine is the perfect accompaniment to help improve your technique and develop your playing style. Each issue brings you expert tutorials from some of the world’s best players to help you perfect your technique and develop your talents.
