an exact reproduction of the original.

musical instruments image

This electric guitar is an exact reproduction of the original, using the same techniques and tooling, right down to the thinskin finish, narrow dot spacing and ’65 transition headstock logo. Even the pickups of the 65 Fender Stratocaster Closet Classic electric guitar have been duplicated to the exact specs of the original. The distinctive neck shape and round-lam fingerboard construction further replicate one of Fender’s finest musical instruments. This guitar features 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.
