2 weeks ago I tried a Fender CS '69 Relic and ended up with a big ol' crush on the thing. I went back today and the crush has turned to full on LOVE!! Olympic white, light relic, rosewood board, funky tuners and what I suspect are Abigail Ybara pickups. The guitar badly needs a setup, but even with that it just rips! Throaty in the neck but with great definition. The middle pickup is strong and would be great for rhythm. The bridge pickup is icepicky, but with a great weight behind each note. The volume and tone controls are super musical. The guitar has a super tight neck pocket and the rest of the guitar shows a very high attention to detail. I'd say it's mid to high 7 pound range. It's been a long time since I had to have a Strat, but I'm guessing that it will be home before the day is out!!
