You are looking at a Fender Custom Shop 1962 Heavy Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar Faded Surf Green Over Black, serial number R83096. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 9.9 oz.)

The Fender Custom Shop takes you back the good ol' days with this vintage-inspired Strat. This 1962 Heavy Relic Stratocaster has all the vibe and character of a well-loved reliable workhorse that has been on tour for decades in the hands of an unforgiving rocker. The lightweight alder body wears a heavily-worn, dinged-up faded surf green finish over black, which mimics the look of an old custom repaint job with the original finish resurfacing along the worn edges and belly contour. Offering a well-played, vintage feel, the maple neck is worn along the back and carved into a comfortable mid '60s-style oval "C" profile. The round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard features a more modern 9.5" radius and 21 6105 frets for more contemporary playability while aged dot inlays cater to the classic style of this Strat.

A set of hand-wound Custom Shop Fat '60s pickups dish out those unmistakable vintage single-coil tones that made the original Strats legendary. The vintage modified electronics include a more modern 5-way pickup selector, and the reverse wound/reverse polarity pickup delivers noise-free performance when paired with the neck or the bridge pickup.

All of the chrome hardware and plastic parts have been aged to accurately reflect the appearance of a 54 year old guitar. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case and includes the Certificate of Authenticity, an instrument cable, a guitar strap and a CruzTools tool kit.
