Music Store Live is proud to present this Fender American Vintage '65 Stratocaster! The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender’s best selling guitars (their early-’80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was “back” as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, we’ve completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based on actual vintage guitars we tracked down to make sure we had it right. We did the work, and it shows, because there’s pure tonal magic in each new American Vintage instrument.
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 this 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. This Strat features a Fender Flash Coat Finish, Olympic White paint job and a 3 ply white pickguard with vintage accurate bevel. It comes with a deluxe vintage black hard shell case.
This Fender American Vintage '65 Stratocaster is in pristine mint condition with absolutely no nicks, scratches, or blemishes of any kind.
The following features attribute to the classic and warm sound of this stunning instrument:
