Description

What a joy to have this rare mint condition 1965 Fender Stratocaster in a sunburst finish complete with the original case, also in mint condition, the ash tray cover and tremolo bar. It's all here and in wonderful condition. This beauty is a complete pleasure to play, every fret is spot on and bends are easy. The original pickups sound amazing and the current owner has had this guitar for nearly 20 years and kept it in superb condition. It's very hard to find one like this and we are thrilled to have it for our customers.

What fun we had playing this guitar when it arrived. I must have played it for a few hours just enjoying the feel and amazing tone. From clean to crunchy to screamin', this '65 Strat does it all in true vintage style. The playability is outstanding and the condition would have you thinking it's just a few years old, but it's a fine 1965 Stratocaster for sure. The current owner has had this and the '62 we are offering for nearly 20 years and kept them in wonderful condition so they are ready for another nearly 50 years of music. We rarely ever see any this fine and are proud to offer this historic guitar.
 
I've played a lot of '60's Strats in my time, but I've never seen one in this condition. It's stunning.
