Fender Surf Green Retro Custom CIJ

Fender Surf Green Retro Custom CIJ

This Beauty began it’s life as a Jeff Beck Stratocaster. I added a CIJ (62 Reissue) Fender Maple neck and had the headstock painted to match the Surf Green Jeff Beck Body. Maybe I should explain something about Fender CIJ (Crafted in Japan) Products. The Japanese keep their CIJ Product for their own domestic consumption, the rest get exported… essentially they keep the best stuff for themselves… and I have to agree.. these necks are probably consistently some of the best necks Fender has produced in many a year! I had a connection in Japan who acquired these great necks for me directly from the factory.. I get to choose the best of the best. And this is certainly the case with this Guitar. The pickups are stock.

Where this Guitar really shines is in its Styling and it certainly is Beautiful on this one… It has a real Retro Feel. It’s like an old Duesinberg from the 30’s. From the Custom Pick Guard to the Chrome Control knobs with Green Abalone tops and the Chromed Pickup Covers and 5 Position Switch Tip, Vintage Kluson Tuners and ChromeBridge Cover and Matching Headstock. To Top it off, I’ve included a matching Airline Surf Green with White Stripe Leather Strap.
