Overview

1962 was another watershed year for the Fender Stratocaster guitar. Five years of experimentation after the famous '57 model culminated in another benchmark Stratocaster. The Fender Custom Shop Time Machine '62 Stratocaster Relic recalls the vibe of its Kennedy-era progenitor, and features a capped rosewood fingerboard, three-ply aged white pickguard, unique 1962 pickups, American vintage synchronized tremolo with cover, and Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuning machines. The 1962 Fender Stratocaster comes with hardshell case, strap, cable, bridge cover, and Certificate of Authenticity.

The Fender Custom Shop "Relic" treatment creates guitars that are super worn-in, like your favorite pair of jeans. They show the natural wear and tear from years of heavy use ” nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware, and aged plastic parts.

Fender's Time Machine electric guitars pay homage to specific years of some of our classic designs. All are built to exacting specifications of their respective vintages, including body contours and radii, neck shape, fingerboard radius, pickups and electronics. Original materials, tooling and production techniques are employed wherever possible to maintain the integrity of these Fender guitars.
