Fender Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster 1964 Heavy Relic Masterbuilt Greg Fessler 3-tone Sunburst

$ 8118.44

Here’s another ’64 Stratocaster Reissue, which is immediately recognizable as a typical Greg Fessler. Similar to van Trigt, Fessler pushes “heavy aging” to the limit, but goes really “deep” into the wood like no other Master Builder. You can see this very good on the back of the body and above the pickguard. Simply great and one of the reasons why Greg is at the top of our list of Master Builders!
This 64 has a pleasant weight of 3375 grams and is equipped with some details that are now almost standard in our orders. The neck profile is the 60 style oval “C”, which is comfortable and feels great without being chunky . In addition, there is the Round Lam fretboard made of beautiful, very dark rosewood and authentic clay dots. It was trimmed to a 12″ radius, which allows relaxed string bending while the action is pretty low. The 6105 “Narrow Tall” are used as frets. The very open and dynamic basic sound of this Strat is a lot of fun, even when played dry. And what could transfer that sound to a good tube amp better than a set of “Handwound Fat 60’s” single coils?

Additional notes: unfinishes NB Hrel, tone saver treble bleed, authentic 1964 decal, ends of frets almost straight/not too rounded, vintage wiring (no tone control treble pu) w. 5-way
