Overview

Fender Custom Shop 2017 Limited Edition '64 Special Strat, Relic Aged, Aztec Gold over Gold Sparkle Finish

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.

Classic look, feel and tone

As a nod to those original era Stratocasters, the Fender Custom Shop has produced this stunning Ltd "64" Special Stratocaster. Built to the same specifications as a pre-CBS era 1964 Stratocaster - but with two differences: a flatter 9.5" fretboard radius, and black fret dots - and with a Relic aged "colour over colour" finish of Aztec Gold over Gold Sparkle, this limited edition Stratocaster helps recapture Fender's Golden Era in both looks, tone, and playability.

Exquisite Custom Shop Electronics

Those Custom Shop '64 single-coil Strat pickups help reproduce that vintage and much-coveted 1964 Stratocaster sound. The pickups have been specially designed according to those origical-era specifications, and hand-wound for a truly authentic aural experience.

This is further accentuated with the use of Fender's very own Vintage Modified #2 wiring and a special "Tone-Saver" treble-bleed network, which helps to keep your tone consistent at any volume level (so no loss of your high-end at lower volumes).

Relic Ageing

To give this guitar that authentic 1964 look and feel, the Fender Custom Shop has applied the Relic ageing process during construction. This gives the guitar an authentic, worn-in look of an instrument that's seen many years of repeated use in clubs and bars, and includes scars, dings, dents and worn areas of paint from the bridge to the headstock and back again.

Premium-Grade Added Extras

Not only does this spectacular guitar look and sound incredible, but it also comes complete with a stunning Fender Custom Shop Deluxe hardshell case, Fender guitar strap, and a certificate of authenticity.
