(I do not make copies of the DVD for anyone, so please do not ask.)My initial impressions: excellent tone, love the fat neck, and it's lighter than I expected.It looks great, but there are some things about 25 years of wear that no one has accurately mimicked.He mentioned to me that Jimmie was getting three of the guitars. Replicas of Stevie's Hamiltone have sold for up to 00, I'm told.The Charley replicas sold for 00, and are now selling for 00 if you can find one. Fender's Custom Shop employs some of the best craftsman in the business, and it is not unusual for their guitars to sell for thousands of dollars due to the number of hours spent handcrafting each guitar.It is certainly not unusual for artwork to sell for ,000, and that's one way to look at this guitar.The replicas of Clapton's Gibson 335 had an original price of ,000.The Texas Red model uses the Celestion Vintage 30 speaker.

The codes are usually handwritten, and the letters can occasionally be hard to decipher. There is no reliable way to date 2003-2005 amps other than to ask Fender customer support to look up the date from the serial number, although you may find a date code on the speaker.
All 100 of the guitars were sold at the 2004 NAMM convention to Fender dealers.
For the Clapton 335, my understanding is that orders were taken on a specific date from Fender dealers on a first-come first-served basis.
Stock Speakers Outside the chassis, Fender has used several different speakers in some Blues Junior models.
