More about American Vintage '65 Stratocaster®

La série American Vintage présente de toutes nouvelles déclinaisons de modèles originaux, qui viennent redonner vie à l'histoire et à l'héritage de Fender d'une manière authentique. Dotés de caractéristiques clés et de spécificités techniques incontournables, depuis les années 50 jusqu'au milieu des années 60, les nouveaux instruments de la série American Vintage s'ancrent profondément dans les racines de Fender. En perpétuant adroitement son inébranlable volonté de créer des guitares américaines novatrices, la marque Fender démontre clairement qu'en plus de savoir où elle va, elle n'oublie pas d'où elle vient.

La série American Vintage a pendant longtemps procuré à Fender ses meilleures ventes de guitares. Sa commercialisation, au début des années 80, était en fait l'un des signes avant-coureurs du retour fracassant de Fender, tandis que s'achevait le règne de CBS. Aujourd'hui, c'est non sans audace que Fender repart de zéro pour présenter une série American Vintage originale comportant de nouvelles caractéristiques et spécificités, ainsi que le plus haut niveau de précision vintage jamais atteint. Au lieu de purement et simplement remplacer nos anciens modèles, nous avons repensé le concept de la réédition vintage de A à Z, en restaurant les outils originaux, en élaborant de nouveaux micros, en retravaillant les couleurs vintage, et plus encore. Pour ne rien laisser au hasard, cette nouvelle aspiration est basée sur d'authentiques guitares vintage. Le contrat a été rempli, et pour preuve : chaque instrument American Vintage délivre une sonorité tout bonnement magique.

La Stratocaster 1965 a signé le retour du manche épais en érable en forme de « C », cette fois agrémenté d'une touche en palissandre laminé et de points de repère en nacre plus larges. Voilà ce que l'American Vintage ’65 Stratocaster propose aux musiciens, sans oublier d'autres caractéristiques authentiques telles qu'une plaque de protection blanche à trois plis et onze orifices, un corps en aulne ultra léger, des potentiomètres de contrôle en plastique vieilli et des micros vintage, des pontets de chevalet et un espacement des mécaniques fidèles à l'époque. Disponible en finitions trois tons Sunburst, Olympic White et Dakota Red (édition limitée).

I have a 57', a 62 and now this fabulous 65 in an incredible Olympic White. In my Blues Deluxe the tone is enormous!
The quality of this guitar is really impressive, I have had many stratocaster but this one will be mine a long long time.

This guitar has an excellent tone, and is a white beauty. When played on the amplifier I thought, I sound much better, I sound like a professional. If I'm someday going to live of making music, then this guitar would follow me everywhere and be played everywhere. It's a magnificent guitar and has a great playability , and has a great look, kind of innocent look. But it's a shame it's so difficult to keep it white, and I have only had it for two weeks. It's the guitar of my dreams, really.

I've just bought a Sunburst '65 reissue Strat, and it is everything I want in a Strat. It can sound crisp and clean or get a bit snarly when you add some gain. It's an incredibly resonant instrument and just sings. The neck is great, chunky but not super fat like a Boat neck or a Nocaster U. The fit and finish is excellent as is the quality of the Sunburst. The way the red fades into the brown and yellow is very well done. This is as good as any Strat I've ever played and while it may be a big outlay this will last me for the rest of my life! Great job Fender!

Definitely one of the coolest guitars I have in my collection, very true to the originals I play both in feel and tone. In my honest opinion, Fender got it right with this model (and actually the whole American Vintage range :-) I use this as one of my main guitars for tours and studio work, it saves taking the originals on the road and this is realy as good, if not better than some of the old originals I use!

My friend bought the Stratocaster for $20. Really second-hand, a few chips and dents, but it still played like a boss.
