available for immediate delivery


This incredible 1965 Stratocaster features an NOS finish package, exceptional playability, and a blend of new and old Strat design to deliver a wonderful in-hand feel and tone. Its lightweight two-piece alder body connects with a AA flame maple 1965 "C" neck for smooth fretting-hand feel across the Narrow Tall 6105-fretted AAA rosewood fingerboard. Sonically, you're dealing with a Custom Shop Hand-Wound '65 Single-Coil Strat in both the neck and bridge, which churn out the vintage Strat tone you know and love, while the middle pickup, a Custom Shop Hand-Wound '65 RWRP Single-Coil Strat, is reverse-wound and reverse-polarity for extra tonal versatility. Plus, its vintage-style hardware, white pickguard, and Aged Lake Placid Blue finish give it a classic look to go along with its vintage tone and feel. Plus, it's a Limited Edition 2020 piece, so you won't want to miss out on this one!
