What we say:
At A Glance:
This Fender Custom Shop 1965 Stratocaster is a true work of Custom Shop art.
We get some stunning guitars crossing the threshold of guitarguitar, and when we received an authentic Fender Strat from 1965 a while back, we knew we had something special on our hands. So, we tasked the musos at Fender Custom Shop with producing some special instruments based on that guitar.
This Fender Custom Shop 1965 Masterbuilt Strat is the result. Hand built by Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Kyle McMillin, this is his very own interpretation, boasting a host of era-authentic specs, stunning Hand-wound '65 Strat singlecoil pickups and a tasteful Relic job from Kyle McMillin himself.
