Peter Kellett Chromed & Anodized Aluminum Stratocaster

⭕ Peter Kellett Chromed & Anodized Aluminum Stratocaster

A very rare 1995 Peter Kellett Strat, chromed aluminum body, the same 1994 aluminum body Kellett used on the Fender Harley Davidson and Aloha and similar to the 40th Fender Anniversary he designed. These Strats are very rare - it appears that there were approximately 100 of these same Strat bodies manufactured and finished (many bodies had small interior dents and were not used, some were sold however) and are in the $8,000 to $50,000 Plus neighborhood ($3,000 Plus for the Fender 40th Anniversary and American Standard ones).

I have communicated direct with Kellett and he informs me that this Strat is the only one of its kind and that he created the anodized pick guard. As a result this is a Kellett, and not a Fender. It is most accurate to state that this Strat is rare.

As reference, Peter Kellett is an established California, USA artist acknowledged for his pioneering work with dye colors on multi-color anodized aluminum. Kellett has completed custom guitar work not only for Fender, but for Gibson and Hard Rock Cafe (in addition to his personal series of which this is one) and other work for Grumman, NASA and Tesla.

Excellent condition. No dings, or dents. Some very light superficial buffing marks on the chrome that dont even go through the coating.

This Strat is in like new condition and is equipped with the best hardware available. The chromed aluminum body and multi-color design anodized pick guard (the anodization labor is written to take 24-labor hours alone by Kellett) is perfect. The neck is an amazing AAAA Birdseye maple neck with a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard (22 frets, 25.5 scale length and 1 5/8 nut width) and dot inlay weighing 7.5 pounds. The Sperzel locking tuners and Wilkinson tremolo bridge work wonderful and the guitar stays in tune. You cant go wrong with this beautiful musical work of art.

Owned more as a piece of art than a working guitar, it has a gorgeous tonal pallet. Great for all styles of music.
As I post this, there is but one other personal series Kellet for sale in the world - in Spain at $6,500 U.S.

This one is for sale at $2,950 U.S. with original hard shell case.

If shipment is required, done at exact cost to Buyer.
