Custom Shop Stratocaster electric guitar in the style of the mid-sixties, including case and certificate
The Fender 1964 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic Aged Aztec Gold from the Fender Time Machine Series conjures up classic flair of the mid-sixties. As a representative of the last year of the famous 'Pre-CBS' era, this Stratocaster combines the best features of the time and relies on hand-wound Custom Shop '64 single coils with reversed polarity and wound center pickup for hum-free intermediate positions. In addition, a greasebucket tone circuit is used for harmonious roll-offs of the tone control and the Vintage Modified # 2 wiring, which assigns a separate tone screen to the bridge pickup. Of course, the 1964 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic Aged Aztec Gold relies on a superb tonewood selection in the form of hand-selected ash for the body and an extremely stable and resonant neck made of Quarter Sawn Maple with a powerful flame. The 1964 Stratocaster is completed by hardware equipment appropriate for its time and optically coherent details of its time in the form of dot inlays made of mother-of-pearl, an aged Aztec gold finish and the historically correct golden 'Transition' logo on the headstock.
