Overview:

The '65 Strat saw the return to a thick C-shaped maple neck, this time with a round-laminated rosewood fingerboard and larger pearl dot inlays. The guitar also includes other authentic features such as a three-ply white pickguard with 11 holes, lightweight alder body, aged plastic knobs and vintage-accurate pickups, bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more.

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best selling guitars. Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, we've completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage reissue concept, restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more, based on actual vintage guitars we tracked down to make sure we had it right. We did the work, and it shows, because there's pure tonal magic in each new American Vintage instrument.
