The 2018 Custom Limited Edition 1965 Heavy Relic C/R Strat guitar is only available for a short time. Here’s a chance to own a highly collectible guitar. Hand-selected by us at the invitation-only Fender Custom Shop event at 2018 NAMM, this instrument represents one of a very limited number ever made with this set of features. Perfect for players in search of superb tonal versatility, light weight and vintage worn-in feel, this Custom Shop guitar is a study in sonic contrast and balance, with built-in mojo and style to spare. Includes an engraved “Limited Edition” neck plate, Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe hardshell case.
The 2018 Custom Limited Edition 1965 Heavy Relic C/R Strat guitar is finished in Super Faded/Aged Lake Placid Blue flash coat lacquer. The lightweight ash body has received a Heavy Relic® treatment that shows natural wear and tear of years of heavy use, nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware and aged plastic parts. The ‘65 “C”-shaped maple neck is quartersawn for strength and responsive tone with a round-laminated dark rosewood fretboard. The 9.5”-12” Compound Radius and 6105 frets assure easy play and deep bends without fretting out as you play up the neck. Other premium features include a set of three Handwound ‘65 Strat Pickups w/ RWRP Middle Pickup, 3-Ply Mint Green Pickguard, 5-Way Switch, Bone Nut, Deluxe Hardshell Case, Strap, Certificate of Authenticity.
Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and masterbuilt instruments, they are just what the name says they are: highly anticipated limited edition models that go very quickly.
