Manufacturer's Description

More about '64 Strat® Journeyman Relic

1964 saw significant design changes to the Strat, including but not limited to the pickups, pickguard, headstock logo and body contours. The Custom Shop ’64 Strat Journeyman Relic is a faithful recreation of that transitional year’s model, with several compelling custom modifications ideal for all players. Its two-piece select alder body wears a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish with the perfect amount of wear. The quartersawn maple neck has a 1963 “C” profile, 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets.

Custom Shop hand-wound gray bottom ’64 Strat pickups (with reverse-wound/reverse polarity middle pickup) are connected to Vintage Modified #2 wiring with Tone-Saver bleed circuitry and a five-way switch for period-correct tone that preserves highs even at lower volumes. Other features include a three-ply mint green pickguard, custom shop synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree with tall metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
