2001 Fender Custom Shop Closet Classic Stratocaster


Located in Seattle, WA


Up for sale is a 2001 Fender Custom Shop Closet Classic Stratocaster in 3 tone Sunburst. We are an authorized Fender Custom Shop Showcase dealer and have one of the largest collections of Fender Custom Shop instruments in the Pacific Northwest. This instrument is in wonderful “closet classic” condition showing some light finish checking on the body, a few scattered dings / dents and some light play wear. I might point out the fingerboard on this guitar is absolutely stunning and the wood has a very Brazilian / Madagascar look. That said, I’m sure it is likely Indian rosewood. Specs of this build are below. Pro setup in house and comes complete with its original hard case, tremolo arm, bridge cover and a re-printed COA.
