Fender Custom Shop Beatle Spec Lennon Black 1964 Relic Stratocaster with Matching Headstock

Ordered specifically to Beatle Spec, this Fender Custom Shop 1964 Strat is like the black Stratocaster with the matching black headstock that John Lennon use in late 1965 with the Beatles. It’s crafted from lightweight alder and finished in a thin skin lightly aged ‘Relic’ black lacquer finish. The quarter sawn maple neck finished in nitrocellulose lacquer, is capped with a dark Indian rosewood fingerboard, with rolled fingerboard edges which gives this guitar an amazing feel. The guitar is fitted with vintage pickups, and a vintage aged pickguard, pickup covers and knobs. This guitar plays and sounds great! In the history of Fender they have made very few Black Stratocatsters with a matching headstock. This is one of the few few – an instant collector’s item!!
