Fender CS Closet Classic '66 Silver Firemist - Friday Strat # 318

Fender CS Closet Classic '66 Silver Firemist

First year of the fat Strat headstock, 1966

Nov. 8, 2013
Our featured Custom Shop '66 Strat is clad in Firemist Silver with adequate finish checking for decades in the closet, but without Relic dings and chips depicting actual use. That's what Closet Classic models are about-- Pops won a new Strat in a raffle in 1966, but never got around to learning or taking lessons, so it lived in the case under the bed with the family photo albums and gakked up cat fur balls. Nice!

Bizarre Guitar of Reno, NV (big FCS dealer) is listing this as new along with plenty of other hi-end inventory worth scrolling thru; although their current abundance of pink flame top PRS guitars is rather disturbing.

Yes, first year of the fat headstock, this one has a 60's "C" neck (not a slim) with medium jumbo frets. It's a limited edition of a 250 piece run (200 USA - 50 international). Dupont Firemist Silver was first used by GM for the Cadillac DeVille, replacing Inca Silver which was dropped in '65 (according to ReRanch and Vintage Guitars Info.)

New FCS dealer stock includes COA, candy and Custom Shop case. Click the pics for close-ups!
