From Fender:

New for 2023, the Fender Custom Shop introduces the Limited Edition Custom '62 Strat Journeyman Relic, with the special combination of a two-piece select ash body, roasted quatersawn maple neck and a flat-laminated rosewood fingerboard for sweet sounding midrange, tight lows and a bit of extra snap on the top end. Lightly worn, Journeyman Relic finishes in Aged Natural, Vintage Blonde, Aged Black and Bleached Three-Color Sunburst are paired with gold Closet Classic hardware for a timeless, elegant look. Taking cues from celebrated golden-era Stratocasters, the '60s-style oval "C"-shaped neck starts out thin near the nut and gradually fills out towards the 12th fret for a full, comfortable feel.

The three-ply black pickguard is loaded with a set of hand-wound Fat '64 Strat pickups - with a RWRP middle pickup and a reverse angle bridge pickup - and Fat '50s ½ Blender wiring for easy access to additional tones. The gold Custom Shop synchronized tremolo rounds out the classic look and delivers unmatched playability and tone.

Other premium features include 9.5" radius, 21 jumbo (6100) frets, 5-way switch, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, wing string tree with tall metal spacer, deluxe hardshell case, strap, and certificate of authenticity.
