OVERVIEW

A perfect recreation of a vintage guitar with the added power of a bridge humbucker.

The Fender Custom Shop 1962 Heavy Relic Stratocaster Electric Guitar was created by master-builder John Cruz. It features a lightweight alder body with a nitro lacquer finish, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 6105 frets, an EVH humbucker and Fat '60s pickups with 5-way switching, three-ply mint green pickguard, and vintage hardware.

This detailed Custom Shop reproduction was built utilizing original tooling and production techniques of the era. And its Relic finish treatment gives it the look of a well-traveled and heavily played axe, although it is absolutely new in setup and playability. Includes deluxe hardshell case.

John Cruz
John Cruz came to Fender in 1987, joined the Custom Shop in 1993 and became a Master Builder in 2003. Being a guitarist and understanding what a great guitar should look, feel and sound like has always been a top priority for him. Custom guitars are his passion, and he is the man behind several famous Custom Shop instruments, including the replica of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s famous “Number One” Stratocaster guitar, the Jeff Beck Esquire Relic (as used with the Yardbirds), the replica of Yngwie Malmsteen’s famous “Duck” Stratocaster, the John Mayer Limited Edition Black 1 Stratocaster and many others.

John has built fantastic guitars for players such as Doug Aldrich (Dio, Whitesnake), Dave Amato and Bruce Hall (REO Speedwagon), Mick Mars (Mötley Crüe), Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Bono (U2), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), Ike Turner, Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), Jeff Beck, John Mayer and countless others. Further, his meticulous work was essential to all aspects of the initial Custom Shop Relic guitars and basses, and he initiated the Custom Shop’s quality assurance program.
