    Fender Custom Shop 1965 Stratocaster Relic Black RW. This wonderful expertly crafted premium build Fender Custom Shop Strat benefits form some sought after upgraded specifications and meticulous attention to detail. We especially like the Relic Nitro Black finish and traditional Rosewood fingerboard with remarkable sounding custom Shop hand wound fat 60's pickups and circuitry. This version has a 65 C neck profile with modern day 9.5 performance orientated fingerboard radius. This Custom shop Strat includes its official hard case and certificate of authenticity.

    Read on to find out more about the history and design details this particular Custom Shop 1965 model is based on. In 1965 Leo Fender sold the company he founded to CBS, effectively ending the era of the original Strat. The 1965 Journeyman Relic Stratocaster is a testament to this iconic design, representing the guitar as it was during one of its most popular years, but with a few modern updates. The lightweight two-piece body is crafted from two pieces of alder, selected for their grain and weight, and wears a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish that will wear in a distinctively personal way. The hand-wound Fat ’60s Strat® single-coil pickups and Vintage Modified #2 wiring offer authentic tone that’s easy to refine while the reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup reduces hum when used in combination with the other two. Other features include a tinted quartersawn maple neck, 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard, five-way switch, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, 3-ply Eggshell pickguard, wing string tree with nylon spacer and bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
