A guitar collector’s dream.

A guitar collector’s dream! Imagine going to a yard sale and discovering a vintage guitar that’s been stashed in a closet—it’s worn a bit and yellowed with age, and the finish is slightly checked with hairline cracks typical of instruments that have been exposed to years of humidity and temperature variations. Its large headstock and round-lam fingerboard took us from Woodstock into a new era. Other features of the 69 Fender Stratocaster Closet Classic electric guitar include an alder body, U-shaped maple neck, rosewood or maple fingerboard, white/black/white pickguard and original spec pickups. This Fender strat features the Closet Classic treatment—built which emulates an instrument that’s been stored away for decades. It has a few small dings, a mildly checked finish, lightly oxidized hardware and aged plastic parts.
