Product information - FENDER Custom '65 Strat NOS Masterbuilt by Jason Smith Gold to Green Fade #R97548

Stratocaster electric guitar from the Fender Custom Shop with Josefina Hand-Wound Single Coils, including case and certificate

The Fender Custom '65 Strat NOS Masterbuilt by Jason Smith Gold to Green Fade #R97548 represents the absolute top class among Stratocaster models and turns out to be an enormously versatile instrument with noble appointments. The instrument from the hand of the sought-after master builder Jason Smith features three pickups hand-wound by Josefina and impressively presents the highest quality standards of the Fender Custom Shop.

High quality tonewoods

For the basic construction of the Custom '65 Stratocaster, Jason Smith uses a two-piece body made of selected alder and a neck made of radially sawn maple (Quarter Sawn Maple), not only a high-quality wood selection, but also the classic tonewood combination of the Sixties Stratocaster. The neck profile with its '65 C-shaping follows the traditional specifications of the mid-sixties, while the rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and a modern 9.5" radius ensures the best playing characteristics with controlled bends.

Built by none other than masterbuilder Jason Smith, the Fender Custom '65 Strat NOS Masterbuilt by Jason Smith Gold to Green Fade offers a classy look and premium Strat tones.

Josefina Hand-Wound '65 Strat Single Coils

In order to live up to the high manufacturing standards of the Masterbuilt class, three '65 Strat single coils wound by none other than Josefina Campos are used. Trained in the tradition of Custom Shop legend Abigail Ybarra, the pickup winder is responsible for the Fender Custom Shop's most coveted pickup creations and offers three single coils wound to classic specifications with authentic Sixties character.

Vintage Modified #2 Wiring

All three pickups of the Fender Custom '65 Strat NOS Masterbuilt by Jason Smith Gold to Green Fade are switched via the so-called Vintage Modified #2 Wiring. In contrast to the classic Strat circuit, this assigns a tone control to the bridge pickup, which dampens overly cutting highs in a well-controlled manner. On the other hand, if you want to access the full frequency range of the three pickups even at lower volume settings, you can rely on the additional Tone-Saver Treble-Bleed circuit.

High-quality gold hardware and fade finish

That the Fender Custom '65 Strat NOS Masterbuilt by Jason Smith Gold to Green Fade can convince not only with its sound, but also a functional equipment and chic look, impressively proves its premium hardware and a beautiful fade finish. First of all, a resonant 6-saddle hardtail Strat bridge with the classic dimensions of the Sixties Strat bridge is used, while six tuning machines in vintage style guarantee reliable tunings. All hardware is gold-finished and highlights the unique gold-to-green fade Finish of this Masterbuilt Strat.
