The sound: period-correct Strat tone from hand-wound pickups

This '65 Strat sports three Fender Custom Shop pickups that have been meticulously modeled after the stock single-coils of the mid 1960s. These pickups deliver bright and clear highs with the midrange bite many guitarists here at Sweetwater look for. When you plug your Fender Custom Shop '65 Stratocaster into your favorite tube amplifier, you'll get everything from smooth and mellow to outrageously aggressive, all with just a casual twist of the volume knob.

The feel: classic neck carve with nitro on lightweight ash

Stellar looks and superb tone are just window dressing if the guitar in your hands doesn't feel right. Fender clearly went above and beyond in this category, outfitting this Custom Shop Strat with a vintage soft V neck carve. What's more, this '65 Strat features a lightweight ash body, offering light and lively playing balance with resonance you can feel in every note you play. Top it off with the broken-in feel of worn nitrocellulose, and you'll never want to put this Strat down.

Fender Custom Shop '65 Journeyman/Closet Classic Strat Features:

- An amazing Stratocaster that combines a Journeyman Relic finish with Closet Classic hardware
- Looks, sounds, and feels like a well-loved and cared for 1965 Fender Stratocaster electric guitar
- Journeyman Relic nitrocellulose finish appears well worn and feels amazing
- Closet Classic hardware treatment appears aged but not corroded
- Maple neck with '57-style soft V carve lets you dig into notes and chords
- AAA rosewood fretboard with mother-of-pearl inlays adds a dash of elegance to a classic layout
- Hand-wound '60s single-coil pickups deliver remarkably versatile vintage tone
