  • Description

    Own a stunning piece of Fender history with the American Vintage '65 Stratocaster. Preserving Fender's legacy and heritage while delving deep into their roots, the American Vintage '65 Stratocaster was built with original tooling and was crafted in the image of actual 1965 Strat models that Fender got their hands on. As a result, this '65 Strat offers all the authentic tone, look and feel of the coveted mid '60s Strat model with painstakingly accurate vintage detailing, period-correct design and classic mid '60s features.

    The iconic double-cutaway alder body comes finished in a thin flash-coat lacquer in classic 3-Color Sunburst that provides an authentic vintage look while allowing the wood to breathe for a more natural resonance. The maple neck is shaped into a vintage-correct thick mid '60s "C" profile to give it that classic Fender feel while the period-correct round-lam rosewood 'board, vintage-style frets, and a traditional 7.25" fretboard radius lend to this Strat's smooth, vintage playability. Further catering to the authenticity of this Strat, the neck features a vintage-style heel adjust truss rod, a Fender Flash Coat Lacquer neck finish, a thicker Fender headstock logo, a bone nut, and larger pearl dot fingerboard inlays instead of the clay dots found on eariler Strat models.

    To produce all those legendary single-coil tones that helped shape the sound of rock 'n' roll, the American Vintage '65 Stratocaster comes equipped with a trio of American Vintage '65 Gray-Bottom pickups that are wound to the period-correct specs of the originals. Painstakingly researched, designed and voiced to reproduce all the sonic splendor of those vintage single-coils from the mid '60s, the American Vintage '65 Strat delivers that pure, authentic vintage Fender sound with incredible accuracy. The pickups are routed through a classic control layout that consists of a Master Volume control and two Tone controls while the modern 5-way pickup switch gives you more tonal options than the original 3-way switch. If you prefer the more authentic traditional 3-way switching, an optional 3-way switch is included.

    The plastics and chrome/nickel-plated steel hardware all hold true to the original '65 Strats. The accurate hardware includes a set of single line "Fender Deluxe" vintage-style tuning machines, a 6-saddle American Vintage Synchronized Tremolo, and a 4-bolt vintage-style neck plate. The plastics include a 3-ply, 11-hole white pickguard with vintage bevel, aged control knobs and an aged white switch tip. The Fender American Vintage '65 Stratocaster comes complete with an array of classic accessories including an updated Deluxe Vintage Black case, a vintage '65 strap, cable and cloth, a vintage 3-position switch, '60s Strat information kit, and a bridge cover.
