All the best '60s stuff, masterfully built to perfection.
The Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Dennis Galuszka '60s Relic Stratocaster Brazilian Rosewood Neck Electric Guitar takes you back to the '60s when the Strat was enjoying a phenomenal decade. Its lightweight alder body features a Relic lacquer finish that evokes years of wear and tear, and sparkling tone comes from three Josefina hand-wound Strat pickups with five-way switching and Vintage Modified wiring.
Other premium features include a Custom Brazilian rosewood neck with a '60s oval “C” profile, 9.5 in.-radius Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with 6105 frets and bone nut, and chrome/nickel hardware. Includes Custom Shop certificate of authenticity and hardshell case.
Like Fender itself, Dennis Galuszka is a Southern California native. Combining his dual passions for music and woodworking, he began building high-end acoustic guitars during his 13 years as a cabinetmaker. As a working drummer, it was a 1999 audition with one of the Fender Master Builders that led to a job interview and a new kind of steady gig—as an apprentice at the Fender Custom Shop.
After only eight months there, Galuszka was promoted to Master Builder. He has since built finely crafted instruments for influential players including Paul McCartney, Andy Summers, Johnny Marr, Patrick Stump, Mike Dirnt, Sting and many others. He has lent his expertise to a number of truly distinctive instruments, including double-neck guitars and unusual takes on classic Fender designs, and several artist model designs. “It’s all about the feel and sound of an instrument,” Galuszka said. “Those things are number one with me, above everything else.”
