I love Honey Burst Strats! And this Custom Shop '62 Closet Classic even has a Honey Burst headstock face. Click images for close-ups!
Currently listed by The Music Zoo - NYC, this one is pre-owned and includes orig case as pictured above. The finish checking is from the Closet Classic aging process. Otherwise, this Strat is in "excellent" condition (Zoo is top rated with good feedback).
An alder body has a nitro finish. Neck is mid-60's "C" which is chunkier than the modern slim "C". The bridge HB is a Duncan '59. I don't quite get the 2-point trem or a Humbucker on a '62 Closet Classic, but I guess the Custom Shop boys get bored. Or maybe a 6 screw didn't sound as good in this guitar as a 2-point. Yeah, that must be it...;)))
