Here we have a fabulous Custom Shop Strat. The Michael Landau 63 Relic. This Strat has a terrific Fiesta Red over Sunburst finish, and comes boasting Custom Shop craftsmanship with an abundance of premium specifications. She is totaly mint condition (Well as mint as a relic can be!) It has never been gigged and was from a collector of fine guitars. The C neck profile fills the hand just right without being over chunky and selected rosewood board is a dream to play. She comes with all original case candy including, the bridge cover, COA, tool kit cleaning cloth and all tags. We are confident that you will not find a better used example than this. Sleeps in her period correct brown Tolex case with gold lining.

World-renowned session ace Michael Landau has played on hundreds of albums since the early 1980s, with artists as varied as Joni Mitchell, Seal, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, B.B. King, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis, to name only a few. He has also fronted several bands, including the Raging Honkies, Burning Water and, more recently, Renegade Creation with Robben Ford. With his own group, he continues to raise the bar in electric jazz, instrumental and rock guitar.

The Fender Custom Shop Artist Collection Michael Landau Signature 1963 Relic Stratocaster is based on Landau’s 1963 Stratocaster, with a hand-selected lightweight alder body, special “custom oval C” neck profile, custom hand-wound pickups and wiring, and a worn Fiesta Red over Three-color Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Other features include a round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard with a 7.25″ radius and 6105 frets, period-correct small headstock, five-way pickup switching, and custom vintage-style tremolo bridge.
