I've been out of the loop. But has the custom shop strayed away from calling guitars generic like 1960's or 1950's.<br /> <br /> I've noticed that vintage custom shop of recent years have a specific year, Like 1964 NOS or 1962 NOS, or 1962 Relic.<br /> <br /> So have they gotten rid of the generic year like 1960's NOS or 1960's Relic?

Looking at the Wildwood Guitars website, they still are offering a great number of "60s Stratocasters" in various states of relic, etc.

Oh OK<br /> <br /> I was just surprised to see Custom Shops for specific years.<br /> <br /> I just purchased a 2012 NOS 1962 Stratocaster. I was surprised that I found one for a specific year. Even Fender sent me info on the serial and it's a specific 1962. I thought Fender Custom Shop only made "60's Stratocasters".

The first CS guitar I ever bought was labeled a 1954 Strat back in 1992. The last CS shop guitar a 1960, that I purchased a couple years ago.

So I guess they have been doing that forever. I didn't know. I just remember always seeing 1960's NOS, Closet Classic, and/or Relic.<br /> <br /> Now I see them in specific years as well.

I have two that are year specific, a NOS '61 Strat and a NOS '62 Tele Custom. Both are left-handed.

I just bought a 1959 journeyman relic. Probably because 59 was a transitional year.
