Fender Stratocaster Custom Classic – STRATOCASTER PRO CLOSET CLASSIC Electric Guitar Review :: Fender Electric Guitars Reviews

With Greasebucket tone circuit that eliminates the usual gain loss when using the tone control.

black rosewood

The Stratocaster Pro guitar was designed with the professional player in mind, with features and looks representing 20 years of the Custom Shop’s most requested modifications. Every feature here has been proven on other models; many have only been offered on the personal instruments of various artists and have never been offered together on one guitar—until now. Features include three Samarian Cobalt Noiseless pickups, Custom Classic tremolo, locking tuners and LSR roller nut, a 12″-radius satin-finish neck with American Standard frets, a big-peg headstock, a neck access heel that was available only on the Jeff Beck Signature Statocaster, Fender’s own Greasebucket tone circuit (eliminates the usual gain loss when using the tone control), and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
These guitars feature the “Closet Classic” treatment—built as if it was bought new in its respective model year, played maybe a few times per year and then carefully put away. It has a few small dings, a mildly checked finish, lightly oxidized hardware and aged plastic parts.
