OVERVIEW

Vintage vibe in a hot-rodded Strat from Masterbuilder John Cruz.

1962 is a legendary year for Stratocasters. Maybe it was the change from a "slab" fingerboard to the subtly arched, round-laminated version. Maybe it was subtle neck profile changes. Or maybe is was just the times. Fender Custom Shop Master Builder John Cruz recreates his vision of a hot-rodded HSS '62 with this gorgeous Heavy-Relic version. Featuring an EVH humbucker in the bridge and hand-wound '60s Strat single-coils for the neck and middle, these guitars have the vibe of a well-played favorite coupled with the fit, finish and attention to detail for which Cruz and the Custom Shop are renowned.

  • Mid-'60s Oval C flame maple neck with round-lam maple fingerboard
  • Custom Shop hand-wound '60s Strat neck and middle, EVH bridge pickups
