1964 was the final year that Fender was their own company, prior to being purchased by CBS, who resulted in the very first mass-produced Fender guitars and basses, changing the way they were constructed for many years to come. Anything produced prior to this takeover, a.k.a "Pre-CBS" era instruments (as they were later referred to) are considered far more desirable than anything the company produced in subsequent years.

As a nod to those original era Stratocasters, the Fender Custom Shop have produced this stunning Ltd "64" Stratocaster. Built to the same specifications as a pre-CBS era 1964 Stratocaster  -Golden Era in both looks, tone, and playability.

The body is made from premium Alder for big time tone. This guitar weighs in at a very comfy 7.9 pounds on my scale. The neck is a 63 C which is a tad thicker then your standard 60's necks, in addition we have a  Quartersawn neck with a 9.5 inch radius and 6105 narrow jumbo frets. Quite a mouthful but you'll love it when you play it! "materbuilt fat 50's" (according to spec sheet) pickups hooked to a 5 way switch and modern wiring. The finish is a Thin Skin nitrocellulose lacquer with a  Standard relic treatment. Very cool vibe with hints of white through the Tangerine finish. A great guitar that would please many players!

This strat sounds awesome and feels great. Light, resonant and full of tone. Nice midrange warmth with trademark strat spank. The pickups sound awesome and everything works as it should. The neck feels great and the jumbo frets make bends a breeze. An excellent example of the breed and a great example of the Custom Shop's best work. Very cool relic job with all of the dents, dings and finish wear of a prized vintage piece. Comes in original Custom Shop case with cert and case candy.

It's always a pleasure to be able to offer a high end piece that actually lives up to the hype. This guitar has the look, tone and feel of a world class instrument. A current shop favorite.
