The Fender Custom Shop 65 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic in Charcoal Frost Metallic is an absolutely stunning rock n' roll machine! A Mid 60's Strat loaded with hand-wound, spec correct 65 Single Coil Pickups, these babies sparkle and chime with the best of them. A 2 piece Alder Body with a Maple and Rosewood neck stays true to the original recipe of the era.
The neck is made from a quartersawn piece of AA Flame Maple and then topped with a Rosewood Fingerboard. The board has a 9.5" radius and 21 6105 frets are installed. The neck measures .820" depth at the 1st fret and at .974" at the 12th fret. 1.650" nut width and 25.5" scale length finish off the touches.
A set of Handwound 65 spec single-coil pickups are installed and they are sweet-sounding. They have a very musical top end that is never harsh or brittle. Even the bridge pickup is sweet! The pickups are tied to a master volume, 2 tone controls, and a 5-way switch for access to all the classic Strat sounds.
