This 2013 Fender Custom Shop Total Tone '65 Stratocaster Relic is in excellent structural condition, but being a relic, it’s hard to say which minor scuffs and dings are from the factory and which were put there by the previous owner. That being said, the Sonic Blue finish is lightly crazed and the frets show very little wear. This Total Tone Strat has an alder body, a quartersawn maple neck, a rosewood fretboard with a 9.5" radius. It is fitted with a trio of Fender Lineage Black Pickups that were specially designed for the Total Tone line of guitars. The middle pickup is reverse wound, reverse polarity to minimize noise, and all three feature staggered Alnico V magnets wound with heavy, 42 gauge enameled wire and cloth leads. We have had quite a few Fender Relics over the years, but this guitar is one of the nicest examples we’ve offered. The original hardshell case, COA, hangtags, and case candy are included.
