Description & Specs

1967 is a particularly notable year for the Stratocaster. The introduction of the Jaguar and Jazzmaster provided some sibling competition for the Strat by then, and production numbers were lowered as Fender anticipated phasing it out completely (!). Cut to the June 1967 Monterrey Pop Festival, however, where Jimi Hendrix mesmerized the audience with a monumentally legendary performance that seemed to singlehandedly return the Stratocaster to the height of fashion, forever changing the fate of the instrument. The Fender Custom Shop 1967 Stratocaster Heavy Relic evokes that memorable year’s model in all its glory, with all the scratches, dents and dings of a well-loved workhorse.

A two-piece select alder body wears a Heavy Relic lacquer finish, while the tinted rift-sawn maple neck features a large headstock, ’67 “oval C” profile and 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets for streamlined play. Hand-wound pickups include a Texas Special™ at the bridge, a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity Fat ’50s in the middle and a ’69 at the neck for an ultimate tonal combination, with a five-way switch and Vintage Modified #2 wiring on a three-ply parchment pickguard. Other features include a Custom Shop vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with nylon spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
