It's a Custom Classic. It says so on the COA.......
I said usually not all the time, is that the problem? Okay I give it to you, not usually but they may.... I don't see why you make a fuss about that.
My first response was to the OP post that read AM CL??!?
So my answer was regarding that script which he seemed to not understand.
So I wrote Custom shop American Classic Lacquer, no? Which would read the stamp made in the neck pickup pocket and then you started arguing...
Again like Paperback noted also the red dye around the neck heel is weird, could be neck swap between two guitar, or might not. Asking Fender would probably help.
Sometimes the CS stamp things on their bodies. Most of the Time Machine range seem to have had bodies stamped RELIC whether the finish was Relic, Closet Classic (another confusing name!) or NOS, so RELIC identified the body as (probably) Fender's CS, but it didn't indicate "the model name and finish type". I wish it was as simple as you suggested!
I also am not convinced that it's a lacquer finished model, though I accept that I may be wrong about that. I've always struggled to make sense of the Custom Classics, but surely if it was a nitro finished guitar they would have mentioned this on the CS COA?
But, at the end of the day, it's a Custom Classic & appears to be kosher.
The custom classic was Urethane Finish
Then fender switched to Polyurethane finish 1/2004
Looks like an earlier version. That series started in 8/2000 and came with a C or V neck.
It should have a Hot Classic Single-Coil Pickup (Bridge), with Custom Steel Inductance Plate.
Looks like initials. JC could be John Cruz.
JC is on the neck also.
I don't pretend to know what you guys are squabbling about, but the guitar looks legit. Carry on.
Is there really any difference?
But neither are what is often called "lacquer" (i.e. nitro). Were the Custom Classics ever nitro finished? To be honest I have never really understood the point of the Custom Classics - just an American Standard with a CS decal on it. Why not just buy an American Standard & save some money?
Fender Mail... is it Fender Custom Shop Full body and neck, i dont understand(
What don't you understand? That says "Everything appears correct to spec sheet". You're not going to get a clearer answer than that.
Yes the guitar is legit. Its an earlier version with texas specials pickups and mid Oval neck.
All the information is on the spec sheet.
Guitar looks all original
The custom classic was produced a few months later with different pickups and came with either a V neck shape or a C shape.
Ok thank you...
