 Product Description

Everything You Love About a Mid-'60s Strat

Combining the best of their mid-level relic'd finishes and lightly aged hardware, this Fender Custom Shop '65 Lush Closet Classic Strat looks, sounds, and plays like an old friend. The worn nitrocellulose finish feels comfortably broken in from day one, with a few spots of more intense wear providing the appearance of decades of regular use. The hardware, on the other hand, appears merely aged and not at all distressed. Speaking of hardware, you can't knock the spot-on tone of the '65 Lush Closet Classic Strat's hand-wound Custom Shop '65 single-coil pickups. Get your hands on this beauty, and see why classic Strats have been setting the standard since the beginning.

The look: Journeyman Relic finish with Closet Classic hardware

If you want your axe to look and feel broken in, then you'll love this Fender Custom Shop '65 Journeyman/Closet Classic Strat solidbody electric guitar. The Journeyman Relic finish gives it the appearance of an axe that's been avidly played and lovingly cared for over the decades. This effect is only enhanced by its Closet Classic hardware, which is mildly aged and not distressed in any way.

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 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 classic C neck carve. What's more, this '65 Strat features a lightweight alder 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.
