Fender Custom Shop's Closet Classic treatment creates instruments that are spittin' images of the originals. Without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamps, you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish the Fender Custom Shop 1959 Closet Classic Stratocaster from the real deal. With a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish that gives the guitar a timeless, classic look, this axe looks like it's been gently aging inside its case in a closet for 50 years. Nitro finishes are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful, they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities - so your Fender Custom Shop 1959 Closet Classic Stratocaster sounds every bit as wicked as it looks!Historically accurate tonewoods perfectly re-create the sound and look of this Strat

Most remarkably, its rounded dark rosewood laminate fretboard is shaped to the radius of the 1959 Closet Classic Strat's oval C-shaped maple neck.Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster pickups capture the sound of an electric-guitar era
