NEW - Ordered exactly to Beatle Spec, this Fender Custom Shop 1964 Strat is identical to the black Stratocaster with the matching black headstock that John Lennon used in late 1965 with the Beatles. It’s crafted from lightweight alder and finished in a thin skin lightly aged ‘Relic’ black lacquer finish. The quarter sawn maple neck finished in nitrocellulose lacquer, is capped with a dark Indian rosewood fingerboard, with rolled fingerboard edges which gives this guitar an amazing feel. The guitar is fitted with hand-wound vintage pickups, and a vintage aged pickguard, pickup covers and knobs. This guitar plays and sounds and looks great! In the history of Fender they have made very few Black Stratocatsters with a matching headstock. This is one of the few strats like this, which makes this an instant collector’s item!You are looking at Serial Number #R98880.
