This guitar blew me away ! Wow!! Amazing.
Longy, 21.07.2020
Over the years I've had many Reissue Strats. MIJ's and AVRI's. They were all great. (The AVRI's were better than the MIJ's). Then I sold some gear and bought a new '63 CS Relic Strat. CS are much, much nicer than the standard production. Straight out of the the box they feel broken in, not like a new guitar. It's like they've been played for years, but with new frets and no issues.

My '63 CS Relic has Hand Wound pickups. HW's have more sparkle in my opinion. This '56 Relic also has HW pickups, and it sounds and plays amazing! I'm using original 1966 BF Princeton Reverb, and 1972 SF Deluxe Reverb. Acoustically, it's super resonant.

The 10/56 V neck is larger than the '60 Oval C on the '63, mainly at the nut, where the V shape is most pronounced. But it's nice, not massive. At the 12th, it feels similar to the '63. Just a tiny bit bigger. It's a very comfortable neck.

I love everything about this guitar ! I would 100% recommend it to anyone.

Olly at Thomann was great though the order process too.
