Fender Custom Shop '61 Stratocaster Closet Classic, Sonic Blue
Our Shop Floor Manager is a huge fan of The Beatles and this guitar was ordered in tribute to the matching pair of Fender Stratocasters that George Harrison and John Lennon purchased in 1964, particularly George’s with its highly figured neck.
We’ve tweaked a few specs to give this historic looking guitar some modern touches, mainly a 9.5” fingerboard radius, medium jumbo frets and a 5-way switch for the in-between pickups sounds, meaning you get the benefits of classic looks and modern playability.
AA birdseye Maple, Sorted for Dark Indian Rosewood fingerboard, Light weight 2 piece Alder body and a gorgeous light Closet Classic finish round out this highly spec’d, great sounding and playing guitar from Fender’s best.
