Fender Custom Shop Exclusive Masterbuilt '62 Stratocaster Ultimate Relic Electric Guitar Surf Green
Everyone dreams of finding a vintage Strat that's been broken in to perfection over the course of nearly 60 years. This 1962 Relic Stratocaster aims to capture the spirit of those vintage instruments!

We approached the Fender Custom Shop with an idea for the most beat-up, played-in Stratocaster we'd ever seen, and we wanted it to feel like it had been played every night for 40 years. We realized that we would have to take the relicing processes developed in the Custom Shop to their limits to produce this Ultimate Relic Stratocaster.

Masterbuilt by Custom Shop craftsman Jason Smith, this Strat features a Surf Green finish that's been aged for a beyond-played-in look and feel. The areas where buckle rash and pick wear are normally found are worn completely through to the Alder body. The neck gets the Relic treatment as well, with a comfortable oval "C" shape coupled with a modern style 9.5" radius fingerboard. All of the traditional Strat sounds are here as well, with three Fender Custom Shop '60s Strat single-coils wired to a five-way switch for full-bodied neck pickup sounds, quacky "in-between" tones, and biting treble leads.

Fender Custom Shop L-Series '64 Stratocaster Closet Classic Electric Guitar Black
What the L is that? It's a gorgeous L Series 1964 Stratocaster from Fender Custom Shop with a black Closet Classic finish. The “Closet Classic” models replicate what a vintage guitar would be like if it was sitting in its case in a closet for decades. Likely it would have subtle weather checking but otherwise appear very lightly played. That’s the case with this ’64 model. In all respects, it’s identical to an actual 1964 Strat; select alder body finished in nitrocellulose laquer, an early ’60s C-shaped maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and very curvaceous 7.25” radius, hand-wound pickups, and a mint green pickguard among other great things. It’s nice and lightweight, and plays and sounds wonderful right out of the box.

In all respects, this guitar is identical to an actual 1964 Strat; select alder body, an early ’60s C-shaped maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and very curvaceous 7.25” radius, hand-wound pickups, and a mint green pickguard among other great things. It also has an L-series serial number and neck plate stamp, which is common for Fender guitars built back in 1964 and '65.
