You are looking at a Fender Custom Shop 1960 Closet Classic Stratocaster Electric Guitar Faded Surf Green, serial number R68739. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 8.3 oz.)

This 1960 Closet Classic Strat yields a sense of nostalgia, taking you back to pre-CBS era Fender, where the legendary Stratocaster was only a few years old. The body of this Strat is crafted from 2-piece lightweight Alder and is finished in faded surf green Closet Classic lacquer finish to give this Strat the appearance of a vintage guitar that's been long-lost but was then rediscovered years later. The maple neck of the '60s Closet Classic Strat is carved into an oval “C” shape, which was a particularly popular neck profile featured on Fender guitars in the mid 1960s. The neck employs a 9.5” radius, dark Indian Rosewood fingerboard and 21 Sanko 6105 frets with classic white dot inlays. The '60s Strat comes equipped with 3 single-coil '60s Closet Classic Strat pickups to deliver that distinctive vintage Strat tone, and a reverse wound/reverse polarity pickup in the middle position to help reduce any unwanted noise. The '60s Closet Classic Stratocaster features slightly aged hardware that resembles the natural wear of a lightly used 40+ year old guitar.

A brown hardshell comes stock with this 1960 Closet Classic Strat for the superior protection of this custom instrument. Inside the case is a Custom Shop certificate of authenticity, a black tweed instrument cable, a leather strap, picks, a vintage-style bridge cover and a polishing cloth with Fender's custom shop logo. Also included in your purchase is a tool box kit with everything you need to properly maintain and adjust this instrument.
