The Fender Custom Shop 1965 Stratocaster Burnt Heavy Relic Electric Guitar is made by the best luthiers in the business, reproducing the unique features of a 1965 Strat and made to look like it had been set afire in sacrifice to the guitar gods at some point.
This 65 Strat has been given Fender's "New Old Stock" (NOS) treatment”built (from original tooling) as if bought new in the '60s and had survived till today.
The body is alder with a thin sunburst lacquer finish. The custom maple neck has a 65 Strat "C" back shape and 9.5" radius for authentic vintage feel and vibe.
True Strat tone is produced via 3 Custom Shop single-coil pickups, which can be adjusted with Fender's familiar 5-position switch, master volume, and 2 tone controls.
The Fender Custom 1965 Stratocaster Burnt Heavy Relic Electric Guitar is equipped with so many vintage style features and has been so carefully burnt and worn, that new sparks are bound to fly in the hands of its owner.
Since 1987, the Fender Custom Shop has been a "dream factory," producing guitars that are to playing what Ferraris are to driving. The skilled craftsmen in Fender's Corona, Calif., Custom Shop are known worldwide for their artistry in making guitars that range from the fine to the fantastic.
