2001 '60's Stratocaster Closet Classic
The Fender Custom shop is know for producing highly accurate reproduction's of some of the most famous instruments every produced. From their website description: "Since 1987, the Fender Custom Shop has been a "dream factory," producing guitars that are to playing what Ferraris are to driving. The skilled craftsmen in Fender's Corona, Calif., Custom Shop are known worldwide for their artistry in making guitars that range from the fine to the fantastic." This 2001 Pre Owned '60 Stratocaster "Closet Classic" from the Fender custom shop leaves little to be wished for out of a true iconic Stratocaster. The Stratocaster Closet Classic is a detailed recreation inside and out and fitted with all the features you could hope for. It has the Fender classic alder body, '60's C-shaped maple neck, and for the first time in it's history, a smaller truss rod and slab laminated rosewood fingerboard with clay dot markers.
This Custom Shop reproduction of a 1960 Strat was built utilizing original tooling and production techniques of the era. This one looks like a real 51 year old guitar, that was built as if bought new in it's respective year, played a few times a year and then put carefully away. They all have a few small dings, a lightly checked finish, oxidized hardware and aged plastic parts.
The design of the pickups is faithful right down to the winding and materials, producing a smooth and familiar tone. The pickguard is a true 3 ply parchment type, the finish a "thinskin" Nitrocellulose lacquer in gorgeous "Daphne Blue". Also included is the original 3 way switching system, if you so so choose to wire this one just like it came from the factory. The custom shop has also included the hardshell tweed case in black and white! Besides the normal marks from the factory, there are a small amount of fine scratches on the back of the instrument, however nothing else to distinguish this from new.
Fender Custom Shop instruments have been crafted for and with the input of the world's finest players—names like Clapton, Beck, Burton, Cray, Gilmour, Townshend and Vaughan, to name just a few. This one could be yours!
