Overview

The 1965 Stratocaster saw the return to a thick C-shaped maple neck, this time with a round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard and larger pearl dot inlays. It was also the first year for enamel-covered pickup wire. That's what players will find on the American Vintage 65 Stratocaster, along with other authentic features including a three-ply white pickguard with 11 holes, lightweight alder body, aged plastic knobs and vintage-accurate pickups, bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Fender American Vintage '65 Stratocaster with Rosewood Fretboard:

    I bought this Guitar to replace a Lake Placid Blue Stratocaster that I bought in 65 new. This one is great! It is so much better made and set up than the original. It was fantastic to have that blue strat. again. It plays like a dream. For anyone who wants an authentic real deal feel, sound and playing experience this is it.
