Fender Special Edition Stratocaster Aztec Gold MIM, 2003

Fender Special Edition Stratocaster Aztec Gold MIM, 2003

The term ‘Closet Classic’ could be applied to this striking Aztec Gold Fender Special Edition Stratocaster, Made in Mexico during 2003. This guitar appears to have been never played and there is no play wear at all. The original protective plastic film is still on PG and backplate! Some of the red-gold colouring on the metal components has light tarnish and that’s it. Aside from that, this guitar is as-new.

Fender Eric Clapton Signature Pewter, 2000

The Fender Eric Clapton Signature model first appeared as a production model in 1998, though the first were built for and used EC himself in 1986. This model is based on Clapton’s ‘Blackie’ Strat which he’d put together from several Strats, but it’s not a slavish copy.

SOLD!‼ Fender Pre-CBS Stratocaster Sunburst, 1964

SOLD!‼ Fender Pre-CBS Stratocaster Sunburst, 1964

Here’s something we see fewer of – a Fender Pre-CBS Stratocaster in Sunburst, with a body date of 9/63 and neck date of March 1964. This type of ‘date mismatch’ has been common in some periods of Fender production. The factory would build and finish a larger number of bodies and store them, with the necks built closer to the sale and delivery date. The potentiometers date to 1963.

Fender Jazz Bass V American Standard Sunburst, 2016

Fender Jazz Bass V American Standard Sunburst, 2016

The Fender Jazz Bass V, as an American Standard version, was built from 1998 to 2000, then from 2008 to 2016. The American Standard name was dropped in 2017 to be replaced by the American Professional line. Despite being listed in catalogs as the “Jazz Bass V”, the “V” does not appear on the headstock logo of this instrument. The five-string bass seems to have appeared in 1965 as the short-lived Fender Bass V.
